At Knox, we take pride in an expansive and intellectually invigorating academic program and a culture of hands-on learning and involvement in campus and community life for both students and faculty. We expect a lot from you, and we will challenge you in every classroom to broaden your horizons both intellectually and socially.
To give you the tools and support you need to succeed in your academic careers, Knox has established a group of educational centers to provide information, resources, and faculty guidance to help you access and navigate the range of opportunities at the College. These centers combine academic and co-curricular programs to help you get the most from your classroom studies and campus life.

The broad diversity of cultural backgrounds of Knox students and faculty come together in the Center for Intercultural Life, which runs the College's diversity-themed housing, and helps organize major annual diversity events including the popular International Fair. The Center also provides assistance for international students, helping with everything from visas to housing and tax issues.

Building on Knox's long history of community involvement by students and faculty, the Center facilitates service and volunteer efforts and events, both ongoing and by assisting with new projects pitched by students.

With an eye toward life after graduation, the Center provides counseling and resources to help students prepare for their academic or professional life, and strengthening connections between students, faculty, alumni and employers.
