Knox College

School Description

Provided by Knox College

Egalitarian spirit-Founded in 1837 by abolitionist social reformers, Knox was one of the first colleges in the United States open to both women and people of color. And it was on our campus that Abraham Lincoln chose to denounce slavery on moral terms for the first time, during the 1858 Lincoln-Douglas Debate. A pervasive spirit of equality thrives on campus today in our commitment to giving every student a voice.

Diverse perspectives-With a campus population that includes students from 47 states and 48 countries, 18% U.S. students of color, and individuals from every imaginable religious and socioeconomic background, members of the Knox community are actively challenged to broaden their points of view.

The breadth and depth of a Knox education will provide you with the skills, information and ability to function independently that you need to flourish in any endeavor. Our alumni are the proof. Knox is in the top 2 percent of all institutions that produce successful Ph.D. candidates, and ranks 11th in math and science candidates. Knox alumni successfully pursue a wide variety of careers in business, science, the arts, and social services. They include attorneys, physicians, CEOs, college professors, computer programmers, teachers, artists, writers and business consultants. In addition, many Knox graduates enter the Peace Corps or build careers of service in government and the nonprofit sector.
