Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Bentley Historical Library is committed to representing an array of perspectives in its collections, programs, and engagements. We fully and eagerly support the University’s work to directly connect academic excellence with diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Here you will find the Bentley’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion strategic plan, prepared in conjunction with University-wide efforts. We are continuing to dialogue about these initiatives through regular campus meetings, and we encourage anyone who would like more information on the Bentley’s plan to please contact:
