Alumni Chapters and Networks

At the heart of the Bentley Alumni Association is a concerted and ongoing effort to grow regional chapters and networks across the U.S. and around the globe. Regional chapters are run by local volunteers and are supported by the Global Alumni Board and the Center for Alumni, Parents & Friends. 

Chapters produce social and business networking events, build ties between current students and alumni and help promote the Bentley brand. Regional networks are recently formed groups that are fully engaged in alumni activities but have not yet formalized chapter status. 

To get involved with an existing alumni chapter or network, please contact the appropriate representative listed below.
