David Bohnett CyberCenter

The David Bohnett Wireless CyberCenter, located within the Resource Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity provides the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender community and their allies with the resources to further meet the primary academic mission of the university. It allows students, staff, faculty members, and researchers easy, accessible technology in a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere.

The computers and other resources provided by the David Bohnett Foundation increase our ability to sustain and develop community; the person-to-person connection with the added technology interface. The David Bohnett Foundation is a grant-making organization with a $30-million endowment dedicated to improving society through social activism. The Foundation makes grants to national organizations that focus their efforts for the creation and support of David Bohnett CyberCenters in Southern California and to local LGBT Centers across the country.

In 1994, David Bohnett founded GeoCities, a successful Internet-based media and e-commerce company acquired by Yahoo! in 1999. In the course of his career, David became keenly aware of what the Internet can contribute toward facilitating change. He has made it the mission of the foundation established in his name to ensure that the LGBT community is well positioned to leverage the transformative power of the Web.

The CyberCenter was made possible by a grant from the David Bohnett Foundation. We are very grateful to the Foundation for their generous support!
