Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion at Bentley
We celebrate our differences and encourage curiosity. Diverse backgrounds, beliefs and life experiences all come together at Bentley, making it a vibrant place to live, learn and explore.
Through conversation, programs and events, we’re shaping the world we want to live in. Please join us.
The Student Equity & Inclusion Team
We provide support, advocacy, and care to students throughout their Bentley experience as they explore their identities. We work together daily with students to deepen their connections with one another by challenging each of us to value the complexity and individuality that every person brings to campus. We aim to equip all students with the knowledge, awareness and skills needed to be successful in an increasingly diverse campus and world.
In particular, we support gender equity, students of color, faith-based students, international students, and LGBTQ+ identified students through outreach, resources and advising. Our efforts are inclusive of the entire Bentley community through educational initiatives and the creation of spaces for engagement.
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 Fellowship
A spring semester program that offers real-world leadership preparation through an exploration of current workplace diversity issues and best practices.
Gather, Grow, Go
Every other Friday, gather in community with SEI to speak out and take action for peace and justice. Each Gather, Go, Grow session follows a similar format. SEI invites you to host a session by contacting Christine Lookner.
