2023 Campus Security and Fire Safety Report

Bowling Green State University's annual Campus Security and Fire Safety Report includes crime statistics and prevention information to assist students in making decisions that affect their personal safety and that are required by the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act. This report also includes fire safety and policy information for BGSU’s residence halls as required by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008. A hard copy of the report can also be obtained by contacting the BGSU Police Department.

Bowling Green State University is committed to providing environments that facilitate student learning in all of its forms as well as promoting responsible decision-making. The vitality of this commitment rests in the education and development of the whole person, including the manner in which students interact with others and the way in which they live out their rights and responsibilities as members of Bowling Green State University. As a University, we are dedicated to providing students with the resources they need to be successful members of the community. This includes the implementation of timely and appropriate intervention strategies and programs when students do not follow University policies. To this end, the Office of the Dean of Students and the BGSU Police Department collaboratively work together to hold students accountable for their behavior and provide education regarding decision-making and personal responsibility. Bowling Green State University is dedicated to modeling responsibility, character development and values education. Through the integration of new learning and reflection on one's behavior, students at Bowling Green State University learn what it means to be a responsible and respectful citizen in a community.
