Because of the accelerating COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing stay-at-home order from the State of Illinois, Knox College has made the decision to teach the entirety of spring term remotely.
Consistent with Knox College's historical commitment to inclusivity, the College today aims to create a campus that is welcoming for all students, staff, and faculty and a climate that is safe, respectful, and free from all forms of bias.
Bias incidents, however, often fall beyond the scope and protection of existing discrimination laws and regulations. Therefore, it is imperative that we respond as a unified educational community to address such behavior while respecting the rights of all individuals to freedom of speech and expression.
It is Knox College's position that acts of bias require a response that asks all members of our community to uphold our shared values of goodwill and acceptance.
