We can build.

The past year challenged us, but we embraced our role as a 21st-century public university for the public good and launched FORWARD., a guiding strategy defined by action. We've identified 21 moments during 2020-21 that moved us forward and will continue to make us better. Each of these moments, or actions, are positioning Bowling Green State University and our students for success.

Moment No. 14 – we can build. Throughout the past year, BGSU opened new buildings and broke ground on state-of-the-art facilities to support learning opportunities for students that meet their needs, as well as society’s needs.
