Knox's more than 16,000 alumni have at least one thing in common -- a world-class liberal arts education. And it's that education that gives Knox alumni the skills needed to become active and engaged citizens in today's global world.
Knox students are taught to think independently, solve problems, communicate clearly, and live with purpose. These skills are why they earn advanced degrees at prestigious institutions, lead presidential transition teams and Fortune 500 companies, argue cases in front of the U. S. Supreme Court, appear on television and movie screens, and contribute to the well-being of our local, national, and international communities.
Knox alumni make a difference and change the world. It's not surprising to learn that:
- Knox alumni attend and teach at the nation's -- and world's -- leading graduate schools. Alumni like Shaunak Mulani '12, who is pursuing his medical degree at George Washington University School of Medicine; Yuna Engle Ferguson '04, assistant professor of psychology at Penn State Shenango; and P. Christopher Earley '80, dean of Purdue University's Krannert School of Management.
- Knox alumni are leading international corporations. Alumni like Carol Bovard Craig '89, president, founder, and CEO of Craig Technologies; John Lawler '88, Chairman and CEO of Ford Motor China; and Margery Rosen Kraus '67, Founder and CEO of APCO Worldwide.
- Knox alumni are changing the world one community at a time. Alumni like Matt Berg '00, one of Time's 100 most influential people in 2010 for his work to improve health care for thousands of people through the Millennium Villages Project; Anne McConachie '71, director and teacher-in-residence of Amka Afrika School; and Jim Hallock '69, founder of Earth Block, Inc., a green construction company.
And just as our alumni carry Knox College to all corners of the world, our alumni also stay connected to campus long after graduation. Thanks to campus events like Homecoming and Commencement, Knox Club gatherings around the country, and publications like the Knox Magazine and Gizmogram, as well as Knox's Facebook page, alumni have many opportunities to reconnect with their alma mater and its community.
