Knox Welcomes President C. Andrew McGadney

Knox College community members welcome President McGadney to campus.

Knox College has begun a new chapter in its 184-year history. On July 1, 2021, C. Andrew McGadney became Knox's 20th president.

During his first day in office, McGadney welcomed Knox students, faculty, and staff at a breakfast on Plomin Terrace.

“Over the next several months, I really want to know what’s on your mind,” McGadney said. “I’m here to listen and learn: to understand the culture. And together, we will then build a plan for the future. We need to be sure that the world knows about Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois. We can do that together.”
