5K and Dog Walk

Build the Best BG
This annual event kicks off the school year by inviting the BGSU community to participate in creating an inclusive, open, and safe community. This event is hosted in collaboration with We Are One Team (WA1T), Center for Women and Gender Equity, and Not In Our Town (NIOT).

Consent & Bystander Cart
Be on the look-out for the Center for Violence Prevention and Education's famous portable popsicle cart! During the warmer months, you’ll find this bright orange cart in the Union Oval, passing out FREE popsicles and providing discussion and activities on consent and bystander intervention. We also provide free rides to class for students on a BGSU golf cart.


Standing Together Against Sexual Violence and Misconduct (Informed-U) sessions are based on small-group discussions. Informed-U provides the framework for learning, but puts the actual learning experience in the hands of students. Student facilitators are trained to deliver discussion-based learning sessions to groups of six to eight students at a time. While the facilitator manages the process and logistics of the 1.5- to 2-hour sessions, participants take the lead in running it. Participants leave their sessions with a broader perspective and deeper understanding of sexual violence and misconduct, and also with strategies they have worked through together for how they can make a difference. The result is a stronger connection to community and greater commitment to improving campus culture.
