Institutional Research & Assessment

The Office of Institutional Research and Assessment is responsible for collecting, organizing, analyzing and reporting historical and current data about Hamilton College and peer institutions to support college planning, assessment, and overall effectiveness. 

The office also participates in the Higher Education Data Sharing (HEDS) Consortium and is a member of the New York Six Liberal Arts Consortium.

Current Projects & Activities

Fall is upon us, and the office has been busy with some of the following projects:

  • The new First-Years are just finishing up participating in their CIRP Freshman Survey.  The Freshman Survey seeks to provide a "snapshot" of the incoming class so that the College can better understand and meet the needs of each year's incoming first-year class.
  • Sophomores will soon be invited to participate in the IFYC's Interfaith Diversity Experiences & Attitudes Longitudinal Survey (IDEALS). The Office of Institutional Research is working on conjunction with the College Chaplaincy to administer this survey.  Please look for invitations from College Chaplain Jeff McArn to participate.  If you have any questions, please contact the Chaplain or this office.
  • Later in the semester, this office will work with the Office of Communication and Development to administer the HEDS Alumni Survey. Alumni should look for e-mail invitations in the late Fall.
