Who To Contact

If you are in immediate danger or need to seek medical assistance call 911 or BGSU Police at 419-372-2346.

Any student, faculty, or staff member with a concern or question about Title IX and/or a potential violation may seek the assistance of the Title IX Coordinator or a Deputy Coordinator. A coordinator is available to help you understand your options and report the incident.  

If you think you may have experienced or witnessed any of the following, but not limited to:

  • Dating violence
  • Domestic violence
  • Intimate partner and relationship violence
  • Intimidation or harassment, including bullying or cyber-bullying
  • Sexual assault
  • Sexual harassment
  • Sexual misconduct
  • Stalking

It is the responsibility of all BGSU community members to comply with the laws and regulations of Title IX. (Contact information for Coordinator & Deputy Coordinators is listed below).   

If you wish to speak with a confidential resource, you may contact the Counseling Center at 419-372-2081 or a confidential advocate through The Cocoon by calling 419-373-1730 option #2 to speak to an advocate. 

An advocate can also accompany you to any appointments regarding the incident both on and off campus as a support resource. This includes speaking with the Title IX Coordinator or any Deputy Coordinators. Please note, however, that if you present a danger to yourself or others, medical/health professionals may break confidentiality to ensure safety.
