We Are Knox

StudentsWe are students who value free inquiry and independent thought. We are students who dream and do, fusing imagination with initiative. Students who solve problems creatively and discover ways to make a difference. Students who share ideas from multiple perspectives, join groups all across the social, cultural, and political spectrum, gain a lot of friends, and have a lot of fun.


FacultyWe are faculty who get just as excited learning from students as we do sharing our own ideas and discoveries, and who often invite students to collaborate in our scholarly pursuits. We are scholar-teachers who are devoted to one-on-one mentoring as we challenge students to find paths for exploring and expanding their interests and talents and applying their knowledge.


FacultyWe are alumni who have learned to become clear and agile thinkers, persuasive communicators, effective problem-solvers, and experts who can see beyond our fields' boundaries. Alumni who have gone out into the world fully prepared, whether in business, the arts, law, medicine, public service, academia, or any other career.


We are engaged learners who are products of our history of challenging the status quo and advocating for social justice, linked by traditions that bind our community in friendship and in service. We are shaped by our mission of encouraging each other to explore, understand, and improve ourselves, our society, and our world. And we are committed to pursuing a future of continued excellence in liberal education that impacts students' lives as well as the progress of our world.

We are Knox.
