The Society for Inquiry of the Hamilton Literary and Theological Institution's constitution states that its purpose was "to inquire into the moral and religious condition of the world" and that "all students at the institution may become members, having been approved by the society."

The Society's activities included presenting and discussing reports on various moral and religious issues, corresponding with missionaries and similar societies at other colleges, and maintaining a library.
