Sexual Violence Prevention
Bowling Green State University is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for our students, faculty, staff and visitors. This commitment is woven into our campus culture, where everyone looks out for – and supports – each other. It also aligns with our primary core value – respect for one another.
As a community, we must all come together to prevent assaults from occurring on our campus. We must make sure survivors are properly supported. And we must ensure that our processes are thorough, fair, equitable and respectful.
We are dedicated to these goals and have recently strengthened our efforts in several key areas including prevention and care. It is vitally important that the support services and processes we have in place evolve to meet the needs of our students, faculty, staff and visitors.
BGSU does not tolerate sexual offenses. The University is prepared to handle situations of sexual assault whether they occur on campus or off campus. BGSU has a Task Force on Sexual Assault comprised of students, faculty, staff and a victim advocate to address this issue. Please visit the Task Force News page for updates on their progress. BGSU offers a variety of programs and services that focus on education, prevention and response to sexual offenses, but we are always looking for ways to improve, so feel free to provide your feedback.
