The role of deans is to make sure that all students are known, valued, and thriving in and out of the classroom. The Class Deans work closely with the Advisors, the Director of Counseling and the Dean of Academics to support the academic and personal well-being of each student. Our collective goal is to ensure that your experience at Bentley is positive and filled with opportunities for growth.

We look forward to supporting you this year!
