After months of preparation, Bentley University students held the 2019 TEDx Conference on April 7, 2019. All the hard work paid off. The ‘Limitless’ conference was a huge success: students, alumni, faculty, and external speakers brought a tremendously engaging and inspiring range of talks to the audience. I can’t be more proud of the team, sponsored by many, including the Valente Center for Arts & Sciences. Advising this team was effortless: their enthusiasm and professionalism needed hardly any guidance.
I am so pleased to start as the new Director of the Jeanne and Dan Valente Center for Arts & Sciences at Bentley University as per July 2018. The center is dedicated to integrating the arts & sciences into the educational, scholarly, and cultural life at our school. I’ve worked with the center quite a bit of the last few years. I look forward to work with the Bentley community to continue and expand the range of programs offered by the Valente Center.
The summer went by quickly, but not completely without any work!
Today twelve of my students – graduating honors students – presented their research during the annual honors conference at Bentley University. These students took my honors research capstone seminar this spring semester. Though it wasn’t always an easy process for some of the students, or for me, I am quite pleased with the results!
