At Bentley, diversity is a top priority. The Office of the President’s Special Assistant for Equal Opportunity leads Bentley’s efforts to ensure diversity on campus, but every department and organization has embraced our commitment to diversity. Programs and initiatives are consistently underway across the campus with the aim of ensuring that all members of the Bentley community feel welcome here.
Campus offices and organizations that help to actualize Bentley’s commitment to diversity include the:
- Bentley Service-Learning Center
- Counseling and Student Development
- Cronin International Center/Education Abroad
- Disability Services
- International Services
- Multicultural Center
- Spiritual Life Center
These centers and organizations also collaborate to host workshops and retreats focusing issues of diversity.
Bentley faculty members also dedicate their time and expertise to researching matters of diversity. For instance, faculty research projects have tracked women on corporate boards and in executive positions, examined sexual harassment and affirmative action, and explored the intersection of race and gender in European fiction prior to the 20th century.
