Since 2018, Knox has hosted a campus-wide Day of Dialogue for students, faculty, and staff. The Day of Dialogue is part of Knox's annual event calendar where classes are suspended for the day and dialogue sessions are conducted to expand our understanding, awareness, and skills as a community to collaboratively address the political and social challenges of our time. 

What is the goal of the Day of Dialogue?

The idea to host a Day of Dialogue at Knox College originated out of a collective desire to provide a specific time and space for the student body to process emotions, perceptions, and perspectives around current events, identities, and diversity on campus. The day is dedicated to providing a space outside of the classroom to support the academic and intellectual inquiry of challenging ideas, telling narratives, and dialoguing across indifference. 

Past Day of Dialogue Keynote Speakers:

Dr. Tierney Bates
Dr. Becky Martinez
Rev. Sam Offer
Dr. Bettina Love
