Hamilton is committed to providing equal opportunity and access to qualified students with disabilities.
Programs and Services
At Hamilton, we believe that different perspectives and backgrounds enhance the educational experience for all. That’s why we provide an array of programs and services that support our commitment to a community that represents all people and identities. No exceptions.
Composed of students, alumni, trustees, faculty, staff, and senior campus and local leaders, the Advisory Council is committed to helping Hamilton stand in greater solidarity with Black and other underrepresented community members.
The Africana, Latinx, Asian & Pacific Islander, Native American, and All other Underrepresented Races and Ethnicities (ALANA) Caucus is a collective of Hamilton faculty and staff of color that builds a sense of community, enhances visibility, and gives voice to the interests and concerns of ALANA-identifying faculty, staff, and students.
As part of our commitment to an inclusive community, a Bias Incident Response Team addresses incidents of bias and hate crimes that occur on campus or at any Hamilton-sponsored off-campus event.
Through forums, panels, lectures, and other programming, the Days-Massolo Center serves as a hub for exploring intersections among gender, race, culture, religion, sexuality, ability, socioeconomic class, and other facets of human difference.
The All Beliefs Community at Hamilton serves students from all faith backgrounds and traditions through events, celebrations, and annual traditions.
From an Open Doors Discussion Group to Safe Zone Training Workshops to events marking Sexual Liberation Week, student-led groups engage the community in important, candid dialogue.
In addition to being antithetical to our values, harassment and discrimination are prohibited on campus, and Hamilton commits to providing a prompt and thorough response to actions that adversely affect any member of our community.
Hamilton welcomes undocumented students. We offer travel guidance and counseling, and work with Golden Door Scholars, an organization that supports those with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status.
Students from nearly 50 countries live and learn at Hamilton and become an integral part of our community. The Dean of Students Office assists international students in a variety of ways.
The Opportunity Programs Office provides tailored personal and academic support that helps students build lifelong habits and skills.
Experienced student mentors are matched with first-year international, first-generation (first in the family to attend college) and historically underrepresented students.
Public high school students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential, but who may be overlooked by traditional college selection processes, come to Hamilton through this four-year scholarship and mentoring program.
Through the QuestBridge National College Match, Hamilton offers to academically outstanding students from all socioeconomic backgrounds scholarships that cover the full cost of tuition, room, and board; are loan-free; and require no parental contribution.
The SEAS Fund supports emergency and exceptional needs (i.e., a flight home to be with a sick parent, unmet medical expenses, purchasing a suit for job interviews, or travel to a career-related activity) for students whose financial barriers are extraordinary.
