National Louis University and Laureate Education, Inc. Announce Transfer Agreement of Kendall College’s Programs and Other Assets

National Louis University (NLU), Laureate Education, Inc. (Nasdaq: LAUR) and Kendall College, LLC announced Jan. 9 they have entered into an agreement whereby Kendall College’s current programs and other assets will transfer to NLU. The boards of NLU and Kendall approved this arrangement, with the additional agreement of Kendall’s parent company, Laureate Education, Inc.

This transfer of programs is contingent on regulatory approvals, including that of the U.S. Department of Education and the Higher Learning Commission, whose decision is expected the latter half of this year, but possibly as soon as the summer.

Under this agreement, NLU will offer all five of Kendall College’s degree programs – baking & pastry, business, culinary arts, early childhood education, and hospitality management – plus Kendall College’s general education programs.

Currently, both NLU and Kendall offer early childhood education and business, as well as general education programs. Kendall’s other three degree offerings represent new programs at NLU. As part of this agreement, Kendall and Laureate will provide financial support for NLU to create state-of-the-art facilities including kitchens, a dining room, and hospitality and culinary innovation space and classrooms on its flagship Michigan Avenue campus. NLU will create a third college within the University that will be known as the Kendall College of Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management at NLU.

“NLU and Kendall College share many important core values and a similar mission of providing access to quality higher education that prepares students for career success,” said Nivine Megahed, Ph.D., NLU president. “After careful consideration, the NLU Board of Trustees has determined that this is an excellent opportunity to grow our institution’s ability to offer additional professional pathways through established programs, serving more students and building stronger communities.”

Paul Lussow, Kendall president, said “The Kendall College board and leadership want to ensure the best future for the college and its students. We believe this agreement with NLU represents a thoughtful solution for our current students to continue their education in Chicago at a long-standing institution with a strong mission and academic history, and we are also pleased that the Kendall name will continue.”
