David Bohnett Cybercenter
The LGBTQA Center@UVM is home to a David Bohnett Cybercenter which was established in the Fall of 2007. Located in the Allen House at 461 Main Street, our David Bohnett Cybercenter features eight state-of-the-art computer stations, a scanner, and printer all with internet access and available to UVM affiliates. Note that due to the expense of printing, we have established a printing limit of 30 pages per student per day. If you print more than this, you forfeit your access to the printers. Additionally, please enjoy your food and drink outside of the Cybercenter, so that our computers are not damaged by spills.
The Cybercenter is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30pm.
The David Bohnett Foundation is a grant-making organization formed in 1999 by David Bohnett (founder of GeoCities) for the purpose of improving society through social activism. They pursue their mission by providing funding, state-of-the-art technology and technical support to innovative organizations and institutions that, in addition to meeting their funding guidelines, share their vision. The Foundation has provided over $50 millino in grants to support social activism including LGBT rights, wildlife preservation, and violence reduction.
Since 1998, the David Bohnett Foundation has provided funding for LGBT organizations to establish Cybercenters. The purpose of these Cybercenters is:
- To offer educational, research, and recreational opportunities to the local gay and lesbian community via access to the Internet.
- To provide a full range of Internet and business software available for business and personal computing.
The first CyberCenter was opened in 1998 at the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center. As of Fall 2010, there are 63 CyberCenters located nationwide. For more information visit the David Bohnett Foundation Website.
