Division of Student Development
2 East South Street
Galesburg, IL 61401
With students at the heart of all that we do, the Division of Student Development is here to support student success both inside and outside of the classroom. Informed by decades of theory, best practices, and educational models that affirm and support our commitment to the holistic development of all students, we strive to help students develop an honest appreciation of themselves, make choices aligned with their values, sustain meaningful interpersonal connections, and engage deeply with those different from themselves--all in support of becoming engaged members of an equitable and inclusive society.
The Vice President for Student Development provides leadership and vision in promoting the academic achievement, personal development, and campus life experience of Knox's undergraduates. The Vice President is an advocate for holistic student learning and represents students and their concerns across campus.
The Dean of Students staff advocates for student needs, acts as liaison between students and academic departments, and provides support designed to enhance personal growth and instill a sense of personal authority and responsibility in each student.

These meetings encourage students to reflect on their time at Knox; reinforce how and when to access campus resources; explore the realities of balance and time management; and assist students in remedying issues that interfere with their academic and personal success. In addition, the Student Support Specialist partners with Academic Affairs to provide support to all students who are in academic difficulty and assists in the creation and administration of summer bridge programs at Knox.
