Diversity is an integral part of the Knox experience.
We may be a small college in a Midwestern city, but collective experience encompasses the whole world. Walk across campus and you will see a collage of cultural and ethnic backgrounds in our students and faculty. One in five students is an international or multicultural student. The roster of student-run organizations includes many cultural groups. And the College operates more than 30 programs in 19 countries around the globe, allowing every Knox student the opportunity to experience other cultures and nations firsthand.
Nothing showcases Knox's commitment to a global point of view better than the popular International Fair, an annual event that draws thousands of students and Galesburg citizens to a celebration of the traditions, beliefs, and cultures of other countries.
The Center for Intercultural Life assists all Knox students by:
Britt Anderson encourages current Knox students to take classes in constitutional law, LSAT preparation, and to be ready to focus only on the study of law.
Scholar John Agnew aims to debunk myths and promote a better understanding of the dimensions of immigration in the United States and elsewhere.
A double-major in English literature and gender and women's studies, she walks in the footsteps of James Joyce and other writers, gaining a better understanding of them and their work.
