Social 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 Task Force Discovery Document

The Racial Justice Task Force shared the results of Bentley's collective change process and the resources we hope will guide the path forward to racial justice and equity at Bentley. Included in the release were three main deliverables from the work of the Task Force over the past several months: the Discovery Document, the Racial Equity Tool Kit, and the Inclusive Excellence Dashboard, all of which will support our efforts in creating lasting systemic improvements.
