Students are encouraged during their time as students at Knox to be active in Civic Engagement. There are opportunities to do this in coursework, through projects organized as part of the co-curricular program at Knox, and by participation in projects focussed on needs within the Galesburg Community.


Knox students are required to engage in an experience that involves immersion or active learning in a subject. There are many opportunities available to take advantage of these transformative experiences. Some examples include:

Clinical Psychology Term
Green Oaks Term
Repertory Term
Startup Term
Honors Projects or Independent Study
A term/semester or short-term travel abroad
Internships/Summer Research Opportunities
