Knox College is committed to the continuing stewardship of Green Oaks and to the enhancement of its contribution to the cultural and intellectual life of the College, in keeping with the visionary aspirations that were articulated at the time of Green Oaks' founding.
The College envisions Green Oaks as a resource for learning across the curriculum, ranging through such diverse subject areas as environmental studies, biology, regional history and prehistory, general education and preceptorial courses, and the creative arts including painting, photography and writing.
These educational uses may be pursued in various situational settings including formal field trips, extended residential programs, individual honors or other student projects, and informal visits to the site.
