Dean of Admission and Financial Aid Monica Inzer joined New York Times senior editor Jacques Steinberg on The Today Show to discuss issues related to financial aid on Friday, January 20. Video of this segment can be found on the Times’ admission website, The Choice.
Since Inzer joined Hamilton in 2004, the college has strengthened its commitment to being a school of opportunity. In 2007 Hamilton eliminated merit scholarships, and, in 2010, it joined fewer than four dozen colleges that pledge to be need-blind in admission and meet 100 percent demonstrated need with financial aid.
Inzer, who joined Hamilton in 2004, was named one of 10 admission deans shaping their field by The Chronicle of Higher Education in 2007. Since 2010, she has also been a member of the board of The Common Application. Inzer was formerly dean of undergraduate admission and student financial services at Babson College in Wellesley, Mass. Prior to her position at Babson, she was director of admissions at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Worcester, Mass., and held various admission and development positions at Moses Brown School in R.I., The Gunnery School in CT and Muhlenberg College in Pa.
