College Councils in the
Knights of Columbus

Jim Jatcko
College Council Director

The Knights of Columbus has an active presence on nearly 150 campuses in the U.S. and Canada. Our college councils strive to promote the moral, intellectual and spiritual development of the future leaders of society, the Knights of Columbus and the Catholic Church.


College Knights are making and impact on their campuses and in their communities. In Illinois, we currently have active college councils at the University of Illinois, Northern Illinois University, Southern Illinois University Carbondale, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Eastern Illinois University and Bradley University.


If you are interested in joining one of our existing college councils or perhaps starting one at your school, please Contact us.
