-- Tuition and fees to increase 4.9%; Hilbert remains one of the most affordable private colleges in Western New York –
HAMBURG, N.Y. – Hilbert College President Michael S. Brophy, Ph.D. has announced many new initiatives to create new opportunities for students, to improve student life on campus, and to make a Hilbert education accessible for more students.
This summer, Hilbert will optimize and evaluate all buildings on campus and make immediate changes to improve the student experience. This includes repurposing a current administrative building to become a Student Union and Welcome Center. Franciscan Hall, a main administrative building, will be transformed over the summer months to house the student activities department, student life, and the Student Government Association.
New academic programs and proposals are being developed to create more opportunities for students. Construction will begin on a state-of-the-art science laboratory and provide opportunities for students to pursue pre-professional areas, such as pre-medicine, pre-dental, pre-veterinary, or pre-pharmacy. New turf athletic fields for baseball and softball are scheduled to begin construction on the adjacent property (formerly Immaculata Academy).
While Hilbert will raise tuition and fees by 4.9% for fall 2019, the college will remain one of the most affordable private institutions in Western New York. Hilbert’s room and board costs will increase by the same rate (on average) and remain among the lowest in Western New York.
NEW INITIATIVES CURRENTLY BEING IMPLEMENTED OR RESEARCHED:
Hilbert College, located in suburban Hamburg, N.Y., south of Buffalo, is a private four-year college founded in 1957 in the Catholic Franciscan tradition. With nearly 800 students, Hilbert is a dynamic Western New York college that offers career-focused majors, including one of the top criminal justice programs in the region, and more than 50 minors and concentrations. The college’s engaging, student-centered campus community offers numerous leadership, internship, and service learning opportunities from which students launch successful careers while making positive changes in their communities. The Hilbert Blueprint promotes a well-rounded student experience over four years – starting with the Foundations Seminar in the freshman year, followed by Sophomore Service, Junior Symposium, and culminating with the Senior Capstone. Hilbert has expanded its academic offerings with the college’s first graduate programs in criminal justice administration and public administration, including a track in health administration.
