Faculty Opportunities


The Valente Center provides opportunities for faculty to engage in research in the arts, humanities and sciences. These opportunities include the seminar series in Humanities, Great Books and READ. Our Undergraduate Assistantship program provides an opportunity for faculty to work on their research in partnership with high achieving students at Bentley. The Visiting Scholars program  provides the opportunity to host a scholar to visit the Bentley campus. 

The Humanities Research Seminar is an academic yearlong seminar on an interdisciplinary theme, coordinated by a Bentley faculty fellow aiming to cultivate research by bringing together eminent scholars from across the Greater Boston area and beyond.
