Masculinities Engagement Network (MEN)
The Masculinities Engagement Network at BGSU is an initiative by the CWGE through Gender Violence Prevention and Education Services to engage men on campus - including students, faculty, and staff - as leaders in education for the entire BGSU community on gender equity, masculinity, and violence prevention. Past events and programming have included hosting the Ohio Consortium for Men and Masculinities Annual Conference in Fall 2018 and training for peer education programs by undergraduate and graduate men on gender equity, healthy masculinities, and violence prevention.

Parenting at BGSU

Gender Violence Prevention and Education Services
Founded in 2018, as a Center within CWGE, Gender Violence Prevention and Education Services (GVPES) seeks to foster a culture that prioritizes consent and respect and actively responds to survivors by supporting them and their allies. As part of these efforts, GVPES works to engage students, faculty, staff, and community partners to create an environment where violence of any kind will not be tolerated.
