Close faculty-student interaction defines the way we teach. As we recruit the next generation of teacher-scholars, we want to continue to attract the best and brightest, who are fluent in contemporary educational technologies. 

Faculty provide the foundation of a Knox education. From professors William Brady and Howard Wilson, to Lane Sunderland and Heather Hoffmann, individual faculty members have an impact on generations of Knox students. At Knox, 97% of our faculty have the highest degree in their area of study and our student-faculty ratio (12:1) means smaller class sizes and more individualized attention.

But Knox professors are much more than numbers and percentages. Knox professors are committed to encouraging the critical exchange of ideas and challenging their students with high expectations within a supportive and encouraging environment.

One of Knox's highest priorities is recruiting and retaining a faculty of dedicated professors. Faculty who will embrace our new educational world, teaching in a manner that is more interactive and participatory than ever before. 

Support Knox Faculty

As we look for new faculty, Knox wants to continue to attract those who will become leaders in their fields and provide them and our students with a campus and facilities that reflect our historic past and our emerging future. Over the past decade, donors have endowed 15 new faculty chairs in disciplines like modern languages, English, history, religious studies, business and peace and justice studies. 

While an endowed chair is the highest honor Knox can bestow upon a faculty member, other opportunities exist to honor faculty members through gifts supporting research, innovation, and travel funds and scholars-in-residence.
