Strategic Plan


As a key component of a Bentley education, the Division of Student Affairs will be known for creating a distinctive student experience.


We create a distinctive learning environment with strong values intended to foster student development beyond the classroom by maximizing opportunities to live what is learned.

Preparation for Life and Work

Work is only a part of life, and Bentley students are being educated for both. Success in a career cannot come at the expense of a fulfilling life.

  • Strong connections to the academic experience are intentionally created
  • Commitment to diverse interactions at every level
  • Environments are designed to make student learning part of student living
  • Autonomy, interdependence, leadership, and integrity are realized by all students

Balance in Class and Life

The complexity of life requires that those who are to be successful will master many skills. Depth and breadth of experience is the path to the future.

  • A community is created that values health and wellness
  • Students are provided strong opportunities for fitness, intramurals, and club sports
  • Ethics and socially responsible decision-making are promoted throughout campus life
  • Fostering commitment to programs, activities, and organizations while achieving high academic standards

Pride in the Campus and Self

Full appreciation of the environment that shapes personal growth and education is vital to continuing the success of students and the university.

  • Varsity athletics are academically and athletically competitive
