In the past few years, Knox has made visible efforts to become more sustainable and instill a sustainable mindset in its students for life on campus and for life after college. Many of these efforts are put forth by Knox Advocates for Recycling and Environmental Support, commonly known on campus as Students for Sustainability.


  • Promoting education and support of environmentally friendly practices at Knox, in Galesburg, and around the world
  • Working closely with the Student Senate Sustainability Committee
  • Greatly increasing action regarding issues important to the planet. Some of these issues include recycling, pollution reduction, water conservation, power conservation, and alternative energy resources
