The Valente Center is dedicated to being a force by integrating the arts, humanities and sciences into the educational, scholarly and cultural life of Bentley University. We host a variety of campus-wide programs aimed at supporting Bentley’s core mission through diverse and creative arts and sciences related research, teaching and learning. We offer opportunities for students and faculty such as scholarships, seminars and research opportunities.
Support for the center sustains advanced and collaborative research in historical, philosophical and artistic fields, as well as interdisciplinary work between the humanities and other areas such as business and the social sciences.
