Alumnus makes gift to University of Cincinnati LGBTQ Center
June 28, 2023
A University of Cincinnati alumnus has made a $200,000 gift to the university’s LGBTQ Center. Bruce Besanko, A&S ’82, retired Kohl’s chief financial officer, has created the Bruce Besanko Support Fund for the LGBTQ Center.
The UC LGBTQ Center enhances the campus community for LGBTQ students and their allies through intentional advocacy, providing a safe space, intersectional programming, and access to culturally relevant resources. The Center has been on campus since 2011.
Besanko says he wants to directly impact students who use the center as a resource. His gift will support both operational and direct student support.
