Kendal at Ithaca was developed with the support of Cornell University, from which it purchased the land. Ithaca College also supported development and maintains an ongoing relationship. Faculty members from both institutions speak at Kendal programs and serve on the board and various committees. Kendal residents may attend courses at both schools. Events on the campuses, especially concerts and theatrical performances, are popular. Residents may also use the Cornell libraries and volunteer at the Cornell Arboretum and Lab of Ornithology.
