Office of the President

Whether you are a student, parent, alumnus, business person, community member or faculty or staff member, you’ll discover that our University has much to offer.

From our modest beginnings in 1910 as a normal school, BGSU has developed into a globally focused University with nearly 20,000 students from more than 70 countries around the world.

Our students are the pride of BGSU. Our commitment will always be to provide our students positive learning experiences inside and outside the classroom, and our goal is to equip them with the education and skills for lifelong learning that give them a competitive edge in the workplace.

The heart and soul of our University is our faculty. They have received national recognition, and many are the leaders in their fields. They are focused on preparing our students to be successful in today's knowledge-based, global economy.

Because of our students and our faculty, our academic programs are among the best in region. Each year, BGSU is nationally recognized by US News & World Report and other publications for our learning communities and service learning, our dedicated faculty and staff, and our strong academic programs.

The opportunities and benefits of the University aren’t limited to academic pursuits. You’ll find exciting athletic events, programs in the arts, and community-focused activities.

I invite you to discover all that BGSU has to offer. The strength of BGSU can be seen on our two campuses, in the community, across the nation, and around the world. We have so much to be proud of at BGSU. Join us as we continue our commitment to excellence.
