Knox is proud of the academic resources and support it offers its students. Students are advised by faculty, who work with them for course selection, provide guidance about curricular and co-curricular opportunities, and then become their mentors as students advance in their Knox career. Our Bastian Family Career Center provides developmental advising for students in all majors and throughout all four years. The Center sponsors career and graduate school fairs, maintains internship and job listings, and provides one-on-one guidance for students.
The Library, composed of both the Seymour Library and the Science Library in the Umbeck Science and Mathematics Center, offers students the print and electronic resources they need as students, as well as beautiful and quiet places to study.
The Center for Teaching and Learning offers tutoring support for all students, hosting the Red Room evening tutoring sessions, geared to every disciplines; the CTL also offers a wide variety of writing workshops to help students hone particular skills. Disability Services at Knox works with all students who have a documented physical or learning disability, collaborating with faculty and staff to ensure appropriate accommodation and support.
Two special TRIO programs, the TRIO Achievement Program and the McNair Scholars Program, provide important support, guidance, and encouragement to underrepresented students, from their entry to Knox to their applications to graduate programs. The COAST Program offers scholarships, tutoring, seminars with visiting scientists, and other opportunities to help underrepresented students prepare for careers or graduate programs in the sciences.
And finally, the Dean of the College's Office, and the other Academic Affairs units, work with students so they can fully realize their education and their potential through study away, independent research, scholarship, and creative work, and by making opportunities available to faculty so that they can best teach and work with Knox students.
