The Bentley Historical Library will be closed for the day on Memorial Day – May 27, 2024


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 1.0 Strategic Plan, which was prepared in conjunction with University-wide efforts, as well as the plan’s summary report.

The Bentley has also created a follow-up DEI 2.0 Strategic Plan, which outlines specific initiatives by staff—including training sessions, lectures, presentations, and exhibits—on DEI topics.

We are continuing dialogue about these initiatives through regular campus meetings, and we encourage anyone who would like more information on the Bentley’s plan to contact us at
