Whether renovating Knox's historic buildings or recruiting dedicated professors, finding the most effective ways to meet the needs of faculty and students is always the first consideration when developing priority projects. New or renovated buildings and enhancements to the College's strong academic program are the direct result of the generous support of donors.

The College's current priority projects are:

  • Faculty Chair Initiative
    Knox's talented and dedicated faculty is the College's most precious -- and most costly -- resource. One of Knox's highest priorities is recruiting and retaining a faculty of bright and dedicated professors who mentor, teach, and inspire students through Knox's celebrated student-faculty interaction. Opportunities exist to endow a faculty chair, academic research or travel, or to enhance faculty salaries.

  • Alumni Hall
    Today's vibrant Knox community -- with more than 1,350 students -- needs Alumni Hall, making it the number one building priority on the Knox College campus. A renovated Alumni Hall will transform the Knox campus and student experience by revitalizing campus life, celebrating a proud history, and serving once again as a gateway between Knox College, Galesburg, and the world.

Other initiatives Knox is pursuing at this time:
