GALESBURG, Ill. -- Eighteen months after introducing a new vision for Alumni Hall, Knox College announced Monday it has reached it's $11 million fund-raising goal.

The College's Board of Trustees will vote at it's June meeting to set a timetable for renovations to the historic campus building. Two architectural firms, Holabird & Root of Chicago and Metzger-Johnson of Galesburg, are involved in the renovation project.

Fund-raising for the renovations began in December 2011.

The completed building will house several of Knox's signature educational programs, including the Gerald and Carol Klail Vovis Center for Research and Advanced Study, the Bastian Center for Career and Pre-Professional Development, the Eleanor Stellyes Center for Global Studies and the Mark and Jeannette Kleine Center for Community Service.
