Global Alumni Board
Since 1955, the Bentley University Alumni Association has warmly welcomed Falcons to the fold from the moment their degrees are in hand. As Bentley has changed from a school to a college and now to a prestigious university, so has our Alumni Association — aligning itself with the university’s strategic plan to meet the needs of our ever-expanding global community.
GAB serves as a strong, supportive voice for our community. Each year, GAB recognizes select Falcons for their outstanding commitment to Bentley and the world: The Harry C. Bentley Alumni Achievement Award honors graduates in a reunion year who reflect the tenets of Bentley University’s founder, and the Emerging Alumni Leader Award honors a graduating senior.

Emerging Alumni Leader Award
The Emerging Alumni Leader Award is presented to a single graduating senior during Commencement Weekend in recognition of the student’s cumulative acts and contributions over their time at Bentley. The Global Alumni Board (GAB) recognizes how this student leader’s activities and behavior reflect their potential to be an esteemed and involved member of the alumni community. This award focuses on four pillars: confidence, conscientiousness, drive and engagement.
Nomination and Selection Process
Each March, nominations are solicited from the senior class as well as all faculty and staff via email.
