Nurturing Minds and Souls
For more than 45 years, Kendal has worked to transform our culture’s view of aging and of older persons, stressing the potential for fulfillment and continuing contribution during the later stages of life. One of the values that sustains those efforts is Kendal’s commitment “to promote an environment of continuing learning, encouraging lifelong growth for staff, community members, boards, and volunteers.”
Ties to higher education are a natural outgrowth of Kendal’s commitment to continuing learning. Because of their shared passion for lifelong learning, Kendal residents, staff and board members became pioneers in establishing ties to leading colleges and universities—including Dartmouth, Oberlin, Cornell, Denison, the University of Chicago, Amherst, Smith, LaSalle, the University of Delaware, Virginia Military Institute and Washington & Lee University.
