Independent research, scholarship, and creative work are the hallmark of Knox’s educational program. An estimated 85 percent of Knox students complete an independent research or creative project by the time they graduate, and 53 percent report working on a research project with a faculty member outside of course or program requirements, compared to 37 percent reported at peer institutions.
The Gerald and Carol Vovis Center for Research and Advanced Study is the place where research, scholarship, and creative work will be showcased. The Center oversees a wide range of programs that support advanced work in the natural and social sciences, humanities, and creative and performing arts. The Center also coordinates nearly $250,000 awarded annually to Knox students for approximately 350 independent study and research projects.
