Publications on culinary arts, small business, etc.

Culinary Institute Lenotre subscribes to the GALE Database Service provided by Cengage Learning. GALE provides access to many commercial publications that are not available on the “free” Internet. They include materials on culinary arts, small business, hospitality, tourism, marketing, etc.  These articles are available to you for free.

The search interface is easy to use and intuitive. Articles can be printed or downloaded. Additionally, highlighting and bibliographic tools are available.GALE is accessible both on campus and remotely. If you are using a school computer, you should not need a password; however, if you are signing on remotely, you will be asked to provide the password.

Whether you’re a CIL student or an Alumni, get involved in the CIL student life!
There is always an opportunity for you to network with renowned chefs, get a great hands-on experience to put on your resume, and on top of that, get extra-credit!



  1. Register as volunteer

  2. Volunteer

    • Network and enjoy this outstanding hands-on experience!

  3. Extra Credit Form

    • Download the form here

    • Fill the part that concerns you

    • Submit it to your chef instructor

    • Once approved and signed, return it to Academics to receive extra credit



The extra credit form is to be used by any student that is going to participate in an event (outside of Chef’s Club) that merits extra credit. This is for the times volunteers are needed for certain school-related events and CIL would like its students to participate in them. It is up to the instructor’s discretion whether or not to approve the student’s extra credit opportunity if the student has attendance issues, is disruptive in class, or any other valid reason to which they feel the student should not get additional points added to their grade. If the participation is not approved, the student will not get the extra credit points. Academics will honor the Chef decision but will require a valid excuse to do so.

Let us know! If you are looking for a roommate, want to set up a carpool, need tutoring, know of an event you think the school should be involved with, send us a message and we'll post it on the Hub!
