Welcome!

We’re excited you’re joining us in our commitment to honoring and uplifting LGBTQ+ identities at Knox College.  We believe that a diverse campus community offers us the ability to learn from a variety of perspectives and experiences in order to help prepare our students for work on a global scale. We value and appreciate the lived experiences of each of our students, and by providing resources to directly benefit our Queer community members, we recognize that their lived experiences often come with barriers and hurdles that require a concerted effort to dismantle. 

Take a look at our resources or get in touch with us to learn more about how you can stay connected with LGBTQ+ issues at Knox.

COMING SOON: Safe Zone Training 

Safe Zone is a national training model that provides an optional opportunity for faculty and staff to learn about LGBTQ+ identities and the best way to support LGBTQ+ students across campus.  Training completion is often accompanied by a physical or digital badge to display your LGBTQ+ competency on your office door, syllabus, email signature, and more. 

Safe Zone at Knox is currently looking to launch a pilot program in Spring 2021.  To hear more about this project and get updates, click here.
