We can create a community of care.

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. 21 – we can create a community of care. Even before the global pandemic, BGSU recognized the importance of supporting health and wellness for its campus community. With COVID-19 highlighting the interconnectedness of our well-being, the University is introducing a Community of Care, a key component to the prioritization of health and wellness at BGSU.

The University is investing in additional resources, positions and trainings to support a Community of Care for its campus community. "We're all responsible for our own health and wellness, but we can look out for others, too," said BGSU Chief Health Officer Ben Batey. "Whether you are a faculty or staff member or student, we can all be accountable for creating a supportive community where we can recognize if an individual is in need of help."
