Teresa L. Amott, 19th President of Knox College

On Saturday, May 5, Teresa L. Amott was officially installed as the 19th president of Knox College. The installation of Amott, the first woman to lead the 175-year-old institution, brought delegates to Knox from 54 colleges and universities throughout the United States. In her installation address, Amott focused on three "topics on the horizon" for Knox: the new culture of learning in a digital world, diversity and inclusion in a global era, and building a long-term culture of sustainability.
