The Student Equity & Inclusion Team
The Student Equity & Inclusion team provides support, advocacy, advising and care to students with the goal of enhancing student success. In particular, we support gender equity, spiritual health, students of color, religiously-affiliated students, international students, and LGBTQ+ identified students throughout their Bentley experience.
Student Equity & Inclusion departments not only act independently to provide services to diverse populations of students, but also work as a unified team to create intersectional programs. We encourage identity development and implement campus-wide educational and celebratory programming with the over-arching mission of fostering a sense of belonging for all students.
Cultural & Heritage Months
The SEI team collaborates with student organizations throughout the year to honor cultural and heritage months such as Black History Month, Pride Month, Hispanic Heritage Month, AAPI Heritage Month, and more.
Student Equity & Inclusion Consultants
