Racial Justice

Bentley University is committed to becoming an anti-racist community. In support of that commitment, the university has developed goals and programs to transform the culture of Bentley into one that fully embraces and celebrates our differences. Bentley has created a Racial Justice Task Force comprised of student, alumni, faculty and staff volunteers to identify opportunities for change on campus. In addition to the work of the task force, the President's Cabinet introduced an initial set of 18 strategic initiatives to guide the university's next steps on racial justice.

Racial Justice Initiatives

Racial Justice Task Force

The Racial Justice Task Force was created in the wake of the Black Lives Matter protests stemming from the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery. It is charged with creating recommendations for Bentley to implement to create a more equitable, anti-racist campus.
