BGSU Bias Reporting

Bowling Green State University strives to be a community of respect, openness, compassion and inclusion. We continue to engage the campus community by sharing our experiences, listening to others, and debating ideas in civil, constructive ways. However, there are times when the actions and behaviors of our campus community impact others negatively and we are committed to providing resources and support for those affected. 

A 'bias incident’ may include language and/or actions that discriminate against persons because of, but not limited to, their actual or perceived race, color, religion, ethnic or national origin, gender, genetic information, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or status as a military veteran.

If you have an incident to report you can do so here, See It. Hear It. Report It. If you have any additional questions or information about these incidents, please contact the Office of the Dean of Students at 419-372-2843.
