Knox College is a community of individuals from diverse backgrounds challenging each other to explore, understand, and improve ourselves, our society, and our world. This commitment dates back to the founding of the College in 1837. We're looking for hardworking individuals with this same high level of commitment to learning and exploration to join our team.
The Office of Human Resources is committed to the highest standard of service in the areas of employment, compensation, benefits, and employee relations. The office provides support to all Knox employees and seeks to uphold College policies and procedures. We continue to expand both the historic mission and the tradition of active liberal arts learning. We aim to foster a lifelong love of learning and a sense of competence, confidence, and proportion that will enable us to live with purpose and to contribute to the wellbeing of others.

The impact of systemic racism also requires that we change ourselves and create a new Knox that truly promotes equity and justice. The responsibility for change lies primarily with those of us who have benefited from the systemic advantages that are the outcomes of systemic racism.
