Kendall College President: Linda Bacin
Eighty-two years ago, Kendall College was founded with one goal in mind: to provide affordable quality education to career-seeking men and women. To this day, Kendall remains true to this founding principle. We are committed to helping our students achieve success by creating an educational environment that blends the best of a traditional liberal arts education with truly unique experiential learning and practical skills development. We want our students to graduate from Kendall employment-ready, with the confidence, experience and education needed to not only succeed, but lead in their chosen professions.
The Kendall experience is special. As an institution, we take great pride in our bright, talented and diverse student body. Each year, Kendall welcomes more than 2,100 students, who represent nearly 50 countries around the world, to our campus. Located in the heart of Chicago, which is home to more than 7,000 restaurants, 700 hotels, and one of the world’s largest convention centers, Kendall puts our students at the center of a global hub of business and culture.* Our students have access to countless opportunities to build skills and experience through our network of industry and employer partners, study abroad programs, student clubs, on-campus employment and student services.
The exceptional experience of our students is a direct result of the men and women who make up our esteemed faculty in each of our distinct programs: culinary arts, baking and pastry, hospitality management, business and education. Bringing to the classroom a combination of industry and educational experience, Kendall instructors are highly-engaged and respected in their field. Students not only benefit from our faculty’s steadfast commitment, but also from small class sizes and a host of individualized academic services.
Whichever program you pursue at Kendall College, you are opening the door to a world of opportunities. I encourage you to search this site and contact our enrollment staff at 1.888.705.3632. Our doors, and mine, are always open. We would love to have you visit our campus so that you can experience Kendall College firsthand.
I look forward to seeing you here.
