Kendall College had its humble beginnings in 1934 in down town Evanston. Back then, the school was called the Evanston Collegiate Institute and was formed to provide two years college education through the school’s work-study program. The School changed its name to Kendall College in 1950 in honour of Curtis P. Kendall, whose father (Harry Kendall) and uncle (George Kendall) helped fund the College and employed many Kendall students. The school started to offer four year degrees in 1977 and was accredited as a degree granting academic institution in 1979.
Kendall College offers degrees through four of its schools: The School of Business, School of Hospitality Management, School of Culinary Arts, and the School of Early Childhood Education. The School of Education was the first to offer online delivery of coursework and this eventually led to integrating online learning with the programs offered by the School of Business and the School of Hospitality Management. Students in these schools have the option of completing their degrees at the campus in Illinois, Chicago, or through a combination of online coursework and periodic classroom instruction.
