“Adjunct instructors continue to bring the ‘field’ or the ‘real world’ into the classroom. They interact with students and faculty alike to add a positive vibe to campus,” shares School of Hospitality Management Dean Susan Tinnish. “Adjuncts are a part of our faculty and a great benefit to Kendall students bringing the most current industry knowledge and practices to our students.”
