Center for Violence Prevention and Education
Founded in 2018 by the Center for Women and Gender Equity and the Wellness Connection, the Center for Violence Prevention and Education (CVPE) 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, the CVPE works to engage students, faculty, staff, and community partners to create an environment where violence of any kind will not be tolerated.
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.
