From the Office of the 31st President, Leonard L. Adams, Jr.

Dear Prospective Students,


My team and I are so excited to know that you have made the decision to attend Knoxville College and to become a part of the mighty Bulldog Nation. Selecting to attend this historic institution of higher learning in the hills of Tennessee, you are becoming a part of a rich tradition of excellence, legacy and joining the ranks of many that have impacted the world on local, regional, and national levels.


Our mission statement, vision statement and core values reveal the true goal of education; to not simply learn, but to become servant-leaders through service. Our faculty, staff, and administrators all believe in service to our students and are here to support you from start to finish. This is rooted in our faith-based Presbyterian founding in 1875 and it still holds true to this day.


“Let There Be Light” is our Motto and this light brightens the pathway to success. There is action to be taken on your part, but here at Knoxville College we will wrap the necessary supports and challenge you in ways that prepares you for a balanced professional and personal life. One once said “it may be difficult, but it’s possible” let’s make the possibility of being great a reality.


Welcome to Knoxville College where education is our core and excellence is our aim.

​Yours faithfully,

Leonard L. Adams Jr. MBA

31st President
