College of Health and Human Services Information
This governance document includes the practices and procedures with which the Dean, administrative staff and faculty of the College of Health and Human Services govern the College. It seeks to maintain the flexibility and efficiency of the College so that it can adapt to the changing needs of its students and to the health and human service needs of society. The document is intended to be consistent with the governance documents of Bowling Green State University, the By-laws of the Board of Trustees, the Academic Charter, and the Collective Bargaining Agreement (effective July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2019).
BGSU’s Optimal Aging Institute (OAI) was created in 2016 to help middle-aged and older adults, and those who work with them, explore the seven dimensions of health, wellness and resiliency. It is funded in part with generous support from Medical Mutual of Ohio and housed within the College of Health and Human Services.
A College-Level Review Committee (CLRC) provides independent recommendations to College Deans and their designees on the dossiers of full-time faculty candidates for reappointment, tenure, and promotion. Based on a review of current CLRC practices across the campuses, this document proposes common practices in CLRC membership and responsibilities across the colleges.
The purpose of the University-Level Review Committee (ULRC) is to provide advice to the Provost on promotion and tenure decisions for those dossiers where there is one or more negative recommendations provided by the candidate’s unit, Chair/Director, college committee, or Dean.
Academic units and colleges should adhere to the following “evergreen calendar” dates to ensure that external letters of review are solicited in a timely manner to support the promotion and tenure process:
“Faculty180 is the faculty activity reporting system used for RPT, merit, accreditation, etc. Faculty members are able to document their achievements in research, teaching, and service. Some data will be automatically loaded into Faculty180 from PeopleSoft. Faculty enters other data manually or imports from online sources such as Google Scholar. Faculty180 will increase the accuracy and consistency of faculty data and reduce the amount of time and effort faculty spend each year on reporting their accomplishments. Faculty180 will also provide faculty with a comprehensive and easily accessible record of their activities over their careers, automatically update CV's, and easily create and manage multiple resumes and/or biographical statements for different audiences."
“Faculty 180 authenticates with your University user name and password. The recommended browsers for Faculty 180 are Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Safari.

Students are expected to maintain the highest level of integrity in their academic work. From time to time, however, issues such as cheating, fabrication, or plagiarism in an academic exercise arise. The original jurisdiction and penalty both vary depending on the offense and when it is discovered. Also, there are specific requirements for record-keeping and for notification of the student and academic dean. The official policy is included in the Faculty Handbook (Academic Charter). The policy is also available in the Student Handbook (Codes of Conduct.
