Badavas Center

History

The Badavas Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning was launched in 2019 thanks to a generous gift from former chair of the board of trustees Robert P. Badavas ’74 and his wife Kalliope. Trustee Badavas recognized the need for business education to remain innovative and adaptable, noting that Bentley’s next 10 years would be as important as the institution’s first century. In partnership with former President Alison Davis-Blake and faculty leaders across the university, the idea was developed for a forward-thinking center dedicated to support the growth of new educational approaches and strategic initiatives. Students and faculty at Bentley University will long benefit from Bob and Kally's $1 million gift to establish this center.
