Center for Women and Gender Equity
As a Center for Women and Gender Equity, it is our primary mission to address issues of gender equity on our campus and in our community through our programming and services. We also understand that it is our responsibility to approach issues of gender as always linked to issues of race, sexuality, class, ability, citizenship status, and all other categories of identity in which people are marginalized and face systemic oppression.
If you or someone you know has experienced domestic violence, dating violence, or sexual assault, contact the RAINN National Sexual Assault Hotline at 800.656.HOPE (4673) or the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 800.799.7233 for 24/7 confidential support year-round. CWGE also houses a part-time Sexual Violence Advocate from The Cocoon - to reach an advocate 24/7 please call 419.373.1730 (press option #2 at prompt). BGSU students, staff, and faculty members may also contact the Office of Title IX at BGSU to file a report and learn more about options and local resources - note that while information will be handled with sensitivity, full confidentiality cannot be maintained through the course of a Title IX investigation.
