BGSU Police Website

Bowling Green State University Campus Police protect the campus community from violence and support individuals after a crime has occurred.  They enforce both state and federal laws. These law enforcement officers can refer individuals to support services within the community and are a great resource to strive to maintain the community’s safety after a crime has occurred.

All survivors of a crime, including sexual violence, harassment, assault, or stalking are encouraged to report the incident(s) to law enforcement. Choosing to report an assault/incident to the police does not require filing criminal charges. However, it does allow support systems to be put into place to aid the survivor.

It is best if reporting is done as soon as possible after an assault occurs, but it may be done at any point. For those who decide to notify law enforcement should be aware of the urgency of reporting the incident and the importance of preserving physical evidence at the scene of the incident as well as on the person that was harmed. If the individual chooses to report the assault days, weeks, or even months after the assault, support systems are still available but criminal investigations become more difficult.

Sexual assaults for which individuals seek medical treatment must be reported to the appropriate police agency by healthcare officials. However, as noted above, students are not required to file a police report.

To find out more information about reporting, statute of limitations, and other information (i.e., protection orders) please contact the non-emergency line found above.

Student Conduct Website

The Office of the Dean of Students supports students through their collegiate experience. This work is done through collaboration with faculty and staff as well as members of the community staying actively engaged including family members of the students here at BGSU.

Within the Office of the Dean of students is Student Conduct, which upholds the Student Code of Conduct that all BGSU students are upheld to these standards. When a student allegedly violates these codes they will be asked to set up a meeting with the Associate Dean of Students, or designee, to discuss the University student conduct process and review the allegations. If the student is found responsible for violating policy, they are provided two options for resolving their case: the student can accept responsibility and the Associate Dean of Students, or designee, will assign sanctions, or the student may choose not to accept responsibility and may request a formal hearing.

If a report is filed that involved sexual harassment or sexual violence, the individual reporting may be requested to speak with the Associate Dean of Students, or designee, to gather more information, to review what the next steps will look like, and for the individual to be informed of support resources available. This additional information that the Associate Dean of Students, or designee, will share include reasonable adjustment availabilities on-campus to ensure that they are safe inside and outside the classroom, and other reporting options available within the community.

One important thing to understand, that will be explained further by the Associate Dean of Students, or designee, is that the standard of proof for this process is preponderance of evidence, which can also be expressed as more likely than not or 50+1.

Student Legal Services Website

Student Legal Services (SLS) is a non-profit law that typically advise and represent over 2,000 students each year. Additionally, SLS promotes educational opportunities for the entire student body that are related to legal issues facing college students. Students must have paid their participation fee at the beginning of each semester to use the service. SLS will not defend students with felony charges and will not serve two students attempting to get protection orders against one another. Regardless of whether the fee to participate has been paid or the student believes that the type of case will be served, SLS should be the first stop for legal guidance since SLS will refer students to other attorneys in the local community who they would recommend as an alternative lawyer.
