    When I talk to parents, I tell them that Knox educates students for the future by preparing them for jobs that don’t exist today, and that we focus on nurturing human skills, such as emotional intelligence, curiosity, creativity, adaptability, resilience, and critical thinking.  As we say at Knox, we provide a `human-powered education, one uniquely suited for success in a world of rapidly evolving technology.  Our faculty engage directly with students both in and out of the classroom, and students put their knowledge to the test in hands-on applications and real-world situations.  Our students live and learn with individuals with vastly different backgrounds from their own, form clubs with them, debate with them, travel the world with them, collaborate and create with them.  In short, a Knox education is helping to create changemakers for the 21st century.

    Knox College President Teresa Amott



    Knox College is a four-year, independent, national college of liberal arts and sciences located in Galesburg, Illinois. The College is one of the 50 most diverse campuses in America and prides itself on its historic commitment to provide access to all qualified students of varied backgrounds, races, and conditions, regardless of financial means. A proud member of the non-profit organization and recognized in the book, Colleges That Change Lives, authors Oswald and Pope note that, "Knox delivers an elite education to a diverse group of students... Knox is a place that will take you seriously, no matter where you grew up or what kind of high school you attended.... the focus is on cultivating your potential, stretching your limits, and sharpening your values so that when you leave, you are captain of your fate and master of your soul."

    Knox College: An Overview

    Knox College is a community of individuals from diverse backgrounds challenging each other to explore, understand and improve ourselves, our society and our world.  The commitment to put learning to use to accomplish both personal and social goals dates back to the founding of the College in 1837.  We take particular pride in the College’s very early commitment to increase access to all qualified students of varied backgrounds, races and conditions, regardless of financial means.  Today, we continue to expand this historic mission and the tradition of active liberal arts learning.  We provide an environment where students and faculty work closely together and where teaching is characterized by inviting and expecting students to pursue fundamental questions in order to reach their own reflective but independent judgments.

    Excerpt from the Knox College Statement of Mission


    Knox College is regularly recognized for this historic and transformative mission; most recently, the New York Times ranks Knox #16 in its 2017 “Top Colleges Doing the Most for the American Dream” College Access Index, which evaluates schools that are doing the most to provide both financial aid and the support that leads to graduation and academic success; Washington Monthly ranks Knox #15 in the nation for its commitment to the public good; and Forbes has included Knox on its Grateful Grads Index, which rates the top 200 colleges and universities for the success of graduates and the number of alumni that financially support their alma mater, for the last four years.  


    Dr. Teresa L. Amott is the 19th president of Knox College. Beginning her tenure in 2011, she is the first woman to lead the institution. In fall 2013, the Knox community embarked on a year-long strategic planning exercise, Knox 2018, which imagined and engaged the future of teaching and learning at Knox over the following five years and beyond. More than 120 faculty, staff, students, and alumni worked together to create a strategic plan that identified goals and initiatives that are central to the future success of Knox College while advancing the College’s mission and core values. Knox 2018 challenges the College to push the boundaries of teaching and scholarship; to expand learning opportunities beyond the classroom; to develop and nurture a campus community—faculty, staff, and students—that reflects today’s global world; to increase engagement with its network of alumni, parents, and the surrounding community; to reshape and renew its physical spaces; and to enhance its financial base.

    The campus community has close to 1,400 students from nearly every state and 51 countries, including a wide array of races, ethnicities, socio-economic conditions, ages, cultures, backgrounds, genders and gender identities, sexual orientation, and beliefs. The College continues to expand both the historic mission and the tradition of active learning, producing productive citizens who can think independently, solve problems creatively, communicate clearly, and live with purpose. Knox offers more than 60 courses of study, including 39 majors and 49 minors in the arts, humanities, sciences, and social sciences. In addition, the College offers nine pre-professional and cooperative programs, including business, engineering, and law. Knox provides an environment where students and faculty work closely together and where teaching is characterized by inviting and expecting students to pursue fundamental questions in order to reach their own reflective but independent judgments.

    Students put their education into practice through the pursuit of research and creative work, including a senior Honors research program; participation in scores of study abroad and off-campus study programs or one of Knox’s immersion terms; access to internships across the country and around the world; and opportunities to help the local community through service projects. The College helps make these experiences possible with the newly introduced $2,000 Power of Experience Grant, which is available to all students during their junior and senior years. These experiences, combined with opportunities to live and learn with students from different backgrounds and to develop leadership skills through co-curricular engagement, all prepare Knox graduates to find success after Knox. 

    Excellence in teaching is at the core of a Knox education. In fall 2016, Knox was named one of the top 26 national liberal arts colleges with a “Strong Commitment to Undergraduate Teaching,” according to U.S. News. The academic strength and distinction of Knox rests above all on a faculty of exceptionally dedicated teacher-scholars. Knox has approximately 120 full-time faculty, 97 percent of whom have a Ph.D. or terminal degree. Faculty invest themselves in an unusually rich program of undergraduate research, scholarship, creative work, and independent study.

    The campus is located in the heart of the Midwest in the city of Galesburg, Illinois. The campus consists of an 82-acre main campus and an additional 700 acres on the Green Oaks Biological Field Station. As part of the strategic plan, renovations have been made and progress continues on campus facilities.  Built in 1890, Alumni Hall was renovated for $12.5 million, to house state-of-the-art academic, administrative and academic-support facilities.  Along with being a beautiful, state-of-the-art visitor’s admissions center, Alumni Hall is home to Vovis Center for Research and Advanced Study, Stellyes Center for Global Studies, Kleine Center for Community Service and Bastian Family Career Center. Thanks to a generous gift from Dick '57 and Joan Whitcomb '56, combined with gifts from more than 160 other donors, Knox created the new Whitcomb Art Center, a state-of-the-art space where Knox faculty and students can study, create, and share art. Across campus, progress continues on the renovation of the Umbeck Science-Mathematics Center, completing phase one this summer.



    Location: Galesburg, Illinois

    Founded in 1837, the historic city of Galesburg was home to the first anti-slavery society in Illinois, and was a stop on the Underground Railroad. Galesburg was the site of Carl Sandburg’s birthplace and one of the Lincoln-Douglas debates in Old Main on the Knox College campus. The city has a population of 32,000 who benefit from low cost of living and low housing prices while enjoying a vibrant community which supports good schools, two hospitals, and new development and infrastructure improvements. The downtown area of Galesburg is thriving with a diverse selection of local restaurants, shops, as well as arts and music.  A host of festivals take place in Galesburg and Knox County throughout the year, and Top Value Reviews named Galesburg one of America’s 30 great small towns for food lovers.  Commuting distance for the typical Knox employee is short and enjoyable.

    Galesburg is a hub for passenger rail service, providing service to Chicago four times daily and access to anywhere in the country within one train transfer. Chicago and Saint Louis are only a three-hour drive by car.  Galesburg is located 45 miles northwest of Peoria and southeast of the Quad Cities, both locations of which provide airports and additional city amenities.
