Certificate for Administrative Professionals
We have recently completed the Certificate for Administrative Professionals curriculum. The curriculum is based on a needs assessment we conducted to identify key learning and development opportunities for administrative staff on campus. The curriculum takes a three-pronged approach:
- Admin Go-to Guide - Published earlier this year, the Guide is designed to make doing business on campus easier, especially for those new to Bentley.
- Technical courses - We have identified 12 courses in LinkedIn Learning to support this curriculum. To earn the certificate, learners must successfully complete any eight of the 12 courses. Qualified administrators will be added to the learner group within LinkedIn Learning.
- Classroom programs - Three 3.5-hour classroom programs are currently scheduled in January and February. Other dates will be announced later in 2019. These classes are cohort-based, and participants must complete all three to earn a certificate. The content includes assertive communication, leadership, customer service, and other skills important to this role. Qualified administrators will be invited.

Bentley's Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion
"Bentley believes that workforce diversity is essential to the University’s growth and long-term success. Diversity refers to the wide array of human differences, including racial and ethnic identity, culture, socio-economic background, experience, and perspective, that exist in the workforce and in the wider community. Bentley believes that promoting diversity plays an essential role in its educational mission by fostering greater innovation and creativity, attracting the widest pool of qualified applicants to its work force, and enhancing its communication and relationships with the community." -- Bentley Non-Discrimination Policy
Bentley HR is committed to upholding our first Core Value—Diversity. Whether it's training hiring managers on implicit bias, or facilitating Bentley Brave Dialog's, the HR team collaborates closely with our colleagues in the Office of Institutional Diversity to realize our shared vision and our belief in the power of difference.
Bentley University is an Equal Opportunity Employer, building strength through diversity. The University is committed to building a community of talented students, faculty and staff who reflect the diversity of global business. We strongly encourage applications from persons from underrepresented groups, individuals with disabilities, covered veterans and those with diverse experiences and backgrounds. We strive to create a campus community that welcomes the exchange of ideas, and fosters a culture that values differences and views them as a strength in our community.
