    This is Knox: A vibrant community of scholar teachers and students. A tradition of free inquiry, independent thought, and diverse perspectives. A college that changes lives.

    We're a proudly, radically open community. When we were founded, we were one of the first colleges in America to admit women and students of color. Now we're one of the most diverse, international campuses in the country. Everyone counts here.

    Experience-internships, independent research, service, study abroad-is built into our curriculum. We're rooted in a small city in the heart of the country; we put our education to work in communities around the world.

    Our alumni do things like win two Emmys for investigative reporting; serve as CEO of Ford Motor China; create an open source mobile health system (and be named "one of the most influential people in the world" by Time); co-invent BASIC, a foundational language of computing; and so on. This is a human-powered community, at work in the world.
