On January 16, our communities learned of the agreement between National Louis University, Kendall College, and Laureate Education, Inc. to transfer all of Kendall College’s programs and other assets to NLU.
While this agreement is contingent on regulatory approvals, work has already begun to ensure a smooth transfer. We expect the decision by our regulators possibly as soon as the summer, and it is important to all involved that the planning is transparent, thoughtful and comprehensive. We are also mindful that both institutions are in the midst of Winter Term, enrolling for Spring Term, and are dealing with everyday business and the importance of keeping our students at the center of our efforts.
Over the course of the next few months, leadership at both NLU and Kendall will continue to provide updates on the progress of the transfer, focusing on academics, enrollment, facilities, regulatory and accreditation and student operations. We want to make sure you are aware of the work we are doing together to secure a vibrant and promising future for the students of both Kendall and NLU.
In addition to these regular communications, we are setting up a web page that both NLU and Kendall will be able to access that will provide information on the transfer progress. We will be sharing a link to that site soon. We want to keep the lines of communication open throughout the next few months. Please continue to submit questions or comments to our dedicated inboxes: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
The students, faculty and staff of NLU are eager to welcome the Kendall community and have captured their excitement in this video. As you will see, everyone at NLU looks forward to meeting you!
