In recognition of their $1.5 million planned gift to support Cal State Fullerton students, the LGBTQ center has been named after alum Michael T. Losquadro and his husband, Dr. Brian C. Keller.

Students, staff, faculty, administrators and community members celebrated the center’s new name, the Losquadro Keller LGBTQ Resource Center, at a March 25 naming ceremony.

The couple’s family, friends and colleagues attended the event, which included a ribbon-cutting ceremony. With Keller at his side, Losquadro shared that the center “is a critical component to the development of well-rounded Titan graduates.”

“From leadership training and opportunities to the simple, safe place for Titans, this center is vital to vulnerable students as they pursue their degrees and their dreams,” Losquadro said. “Cal State Fullerton has stepped up to meet the important social needs of its rainbow students.”

CSUF President Sylvia Alva acknowledged Losquadro and Keller for their commitment to belonging and inclusion.

“Thank you for your vision, for opening your hearts and treasures to the university,” Alva said. “With the Losquadro Keller LGBTQ Resource Center, our students will feel the love and support you have given for many years to come.”

Losquadro ’86 (B.A. business administration-management), who spent his career in higher education fundraising and Keller, a family medicine physician at Kaiser Permanente, are longtime supporters and advocates of the LGBTQ community.

Of their planned gift, $1.2 million will go to the center for programming and $300,000 for student scholarships in the College of Business and Economics.

The center, part of the Diversity Initiatives and Resource Centers, offers an inclusive and affirming space and community for students, staff, faculty and the broader community.
