Our Shared Responsibility

Knox’s culture of shared responsibility and care for our community will continue to be more important than ever this fall.

Campus Meetings & Events Guidelines

Please be aware of the updated guidelines for planning meetings and events in our current environment.


We are adopting a mask optional policy for the start of the 2022-2023 academic year. Those who are not yet fully vaccinated (this includes receiving the booster), who are at elevated risk, or who have family members at risk are strongly encouraged to continue the use of masks indoors.  Masks are required in the situations outlined below.

  • Instructors may require masks of everyone in indoor classrooms, labs, and studios. Failure to comply with a classroom mask requirement may result in a violation of our student conduct policy.
  • Inside the Student Health Services building, and the COVID testing site.
  • Masks may be required by the organizers of large meetings and events with 25 attendees or more. Some examples include performances in the Ford Center for Fine Arts or indoor spectator or other guest events in the T. Fleming Fieldhouse or Memorial Gym.

Any individual can continue to require masks in their personal offices and living spaces as they deem necessary.

Everyone on campus should keep a mask with them for situations where extra protection is needed or if they are exhibiting COVID-like symptoms. Everyone should support and offer respect for those who choose to wear masks.


The NCAA and Midwest Conference have protocols in place to allow athletic competition to resume this fall. Knox athletic teams and visiting teams are subject to those protocols. In some cases, student-athletes and/or coaches may not be masked during particular practice and competition activities.
