The Benson Family Foundation supports a range of academic initiatives at PLU, from student scholarships, to faculty and staff programming, to research fellowships that connect students and faculty mentors.

Each Summer, the Foundation supports student-faculty research teams studying business history, economics, and innovation in an interdisciplinary context. Innovative History received its initial financial support from a Benson Family Fellowship.

Innovative History was recorded and produced in PLU’s Martin J. Neeb Center, the home of student media directed by PLU’s School of Arts and Communication.

We are especially grateful for the support of LASR, Lute Air Student Radio.
