Valente Center


Valente Community

Welcome to the Valente Center Community!

The Valente Center offers a home for students: A space to come together, foster our community, to discuss ideas and feel supported. Students from across disciplines gather for events, roundtable discussions and also to find a quiet place to study and do homework. We share this physical space with the Honors Program and we are informally known as the Honors/Valente Lounge. We invite students to the Valente Center to come explore and engage!

We are deeply saddened by the passing of our dear colleague and friend, Mike Goldberg. Mike was a senior lecturer in the Information Design and Corporate Communications Department at Bentley University and an enthusiastic supporter of the Valente Center for Arts and Sciences. We will miss you, Mike!

Student Led Initiatives

The Valente Center for Arts & Sciences is able to offer support to Bentley undergraduates eager to deepen their understanding of the arts and sciences by organizing their own initiatives. This is an opportunity for a small group of students (10 or fewer) to explore their interest in drama, music, art, history, politics, and other topics related to the arts and sciences. These self-directed and not-for-credit seminars can be inspired by courses that you have already taken or by subjects that are not currently offered at Bentley.
