About the University

Welcome

When Kendall University framed its charter, it set forth a mission to educate its students "for the different professions and for the honorable discharge of the duties of life." The University pursues that mission by educating young men and women in the liberal arts through free inquiry and the open exchange of ideas. As a teaching and learning community, the University holds that knowledge is a good to be pursued both for its own sake and for the intellectual, moral, and physical well-being of individuals and of society at large. Our University exists to provide a lively academic community of students and teachers of high scholarly qualifications from diverse social and cultural circumstances. Kendall University aims to graduate women and men who can think clearly, who can speak and write persuasively and even eloquently, who can evaluate critically both their own and others' ideas, who can acquire new knowledge, and who are prepared in life and work to use their knowledge an d their abilities to serve the common good.

Kendall University was founded by James Arnold Kendall, who was himself an educator for over 35 years. His dream was to make it possible for anyone to obtain an education no matter where they might reside in the world. Today the invent of home computers and the Internet have made his dream a reality. Kendall University is a privately owned virtual institution located only on the Internet, but its classrooms are filled with students from all walks of life and from almost every country.

Several years ago, Mr. Kendall passed away after a long battle with cancer, and although we no longer have this great man among us, his ideas and his strong spirit to overcome against all odds are embedded deeply in Kendall University and its students.

Kendall University offers degree programs from an Associate of Arts or Science to a Doctorate degree in a variety of disciplines. All of our programs are offered through online courses which allow almost anyone with a computer and an Internet connection to take advantage of this learning medium. Kendall University has catered itself and its classes to accommodate people who have full time employment and full time families as well.
