WE ARE

a student organization that merges the different cultures that are represented by the Bentley community. We aim to create strong, diverse relationships and achieve cultural appreciation through different events and activities throughout the academic year.

OUR STRATEGY

is to organize events both on and off-campus to allow our members to familiarize themselves with the Bentley community and get to know the Boston area. At ISA, we aim to create networking and social opportunities as well as exposing our members to diversity and culture. Our goals include enriching campus diversity, building meaningful relationships, and having fun while doing so!

THE POWER OF DIVERSITY

Everyone has something to offer, regardless of where we are from - we believe in the power of diversity. It's all about where you want to be and who you want to surround yourself with. Dare to join ISA to experience what the power of your differences can really do!

    Global Voice

    In 2018, we founded the Global Voice initiative, through which ISA looks to expand its purposes to be larger than merely entertaining. We want to serve as the medium through which Bentley’s international community can express its concerns, recommendations, or feedback to the various bodies that deal with foreign matters at Bentley. We aim to become an organization where international students look up to when problems arise and new solutions need to be developed. As international students, we all establish the core of Bentley’s first-ever Global Voice!

    Mission

    The goal of Global Voice is to support international students at Bentley by identifying the professional, academic and social challenges of being international and creating innovative solutions to maximize opportunities for success
