The Jeanne & Dan Valente Center for Arts & Sciences

The Valente Center for Arts and Sciences postpones its on-campus events to the Fall. Our campus maybe closed but as a community of learners and leaders, we are moving forward together by continuing our academic seminars and undergraduate research programs in a virtual setting. We are also planning an exciting line up of new events in the Fall and we look forward to your continued participation. Our Director, Hans Eijmberts ( and Program Assistant, Neelangi Gunasekera ( are always available for a conversation about our programming, so please feel free to connect with us!

The Valente Center is dedicated to integrating the arts & 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 A&S-related research, teaching, and learning. We offer opportunities for students and faculty such as fellowships, seminars, and research opportunities.

Read why business students more than ever need an education integrated with liberal-arts classes to be better prepared for the fast changing world.

We rely on the generosity of individual donors to fund its workshops, fellowships, and public programs. 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. The center is especially eager to develop new programs that directly benefit Bentley undergraduates.

Given Bentley University’s mission to educate ethical and socially responsible organizational leaders via impactful knowledge within and across business and the arts and sciences, we created the Bentley Alliance for Ethics and Social Responsibility (BAESR) in 2003. The role of the BAESR is to amplify and extend the work of the autonomous centers and initiatives on campus, supporting and encouraging greater awareness of, respect for, and commitment to ethics, service, social responsibility and sustainability in our research, curricula and campus culture. The Valente Center for Arts & Sciences is proud to be a partner in the Alliance.
