• Professor and author Robin Wall Kimmerer offered students, faculty, and community members gathered in the Chapel a profound testimony regarding the decolonization of the environmentalist movement. The author of the national bestseller Braiding Sweetgrass came to College Hill to deliver this year’s Plant Lecture.

  • Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies Aaron Strong has published two research articles with recent alumni.

  • Hamilton faculty and students traveled the globe this summer, collaborating on research projects from the UK to Romania. See what some had to say about their research and travels.

  • While traversing the scenic peaks of the Adirondacks or canoeing through quiet backcountry streams, few first-year students are thinking about algorithms and linear optimization. But these mathematical ideas are as much a part of Hamilton orientation trips as any pack or paddle: they ensure that incoming students have the most worthwhile experience possible.

  • Life-threatening diseases could become easier to detect thanks to a Hamilton student-faculty research team and its partnership with an internationally recognized biomedical research institute here in Utica.

  • In the stagnant air of subway stations, unnoticed by countless commuters, the sounds of street musicians ornament the harsh rumble of passing trains. Some of these performers go viral for their abilities; many more remain unseen and unheard. But how exactly do they contribute to the fabric of the communities they inhabit?

  • Throughout history, art has repeatedly pushed for change by unsettling conventional perspectives on social issues. This summer, a team of Hamilton students hopes to accomplish something similar with their Levitt Center research project by portraying the lived experience of disability through theatre.

  • If you walked around campus on a nice day this summer, you would likely have seen a pair of Hamilton students hammering metal tags onto trees. You might well have seen them doing it over, and over, and over again.

  • Artificial intelligence and climate change are among the very foremost hot-button issues of today. This summer, a project by Adam Koplik ’25 and Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies Heather Kropp is using one to explore the other—by employing machine learning to measure vegetation change in the Arctic.

  • “What happens when natural things — pollen in a gust of wind, a carnivorous pitcher plant, an armadillo’s thick skin — enter human history?” Thus begins the introduction to Natural Things in Early Modern Worlds, a new book conceived and co-edited by Assistant Professor of History Mackenzie Cooley.

The $400 million campaign marked the most ambitious fundraising initiative in the College's history.
