With a strong faculty of teacher-scholars, Bentley strives to lead higher education in the integration of global business with the arts and sciences, information technology, and corporate ethics and social responsibility. Providing a stimulating academic community for both faculty and students, Bentley supports its faculty as they pursue cutting-edge research and bring their expertise and real world understanding into the classroom. We seek qualified faculty who represent diverse backgrounds, interests and talents and share a commitment to high ethical standards and a willingness to embrace challenge and change.
Bentley University strives 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.
