Established in 1837 by anti-slavery campaigners and Presbyterian ministers, Knox College has been open to all races and backgrounds since its founding. The liberal arts college has been classified a “more selective” institution by the Carnegie Foundation. Outside of the main campus, Knox College operates the Green Oaks Biological Field Station where students and faculty research the surrounding forest.
