College Raptor has ranked Knox #16 on its 2022 list of Hidden Gem Colleges for the Most Ethnic Diversity. At Knox, 35% of students are domestic students of color and 19% are international. Students come from 45 states and 49 countries.

“Our students' experiences and voices are part of the fabric of the College,” said Tianna Cervantez, executive director for diversity, equity and inclusion. “The work that we do toward creating an inclusive campus environment is vital and ongoing.” 

Engaging with people of diverse backgrounds is an important part of the Knox experience, and the College offers an inviting community for all students:

To be considered as a Hidden Gem, schools must receive fewer than 5,000 applications per year, have fewer than 7,000 undergraduate students, offer five or more unique majors, and have a 10% acceptance rate or higher.
