Policies & Practices
What you should know
Respect, fairness and consistency are the hallmark of a Bentley career. We maintain a comprehensive set of employment policies and procedures to insure that employees know what to expect—both for their own behavior and from the university. This is the foundation of fair and consistent treatment for all.
The resources below work in conjunction with, and do not replace, amend or supplement, any provisions in the Faculty Manual or other collective bargaining agreement that Bentley has with a union. Both the Faculty Manual and collective bargaining agreements are your primary resource—when in doubt, check those first.
These policies and procedures are meant to give guidance, and are not contractual in nature. No set of policies or procedures can cover every situation; these materials are reviewed periodically and subject to change without notice.
