BGSU Cares

BGSU Cares is community in which everyone is noticeably connected by a sense of duty to each other’s wellbeing and the creation of an inclusive culture. This duty is manifested by the members of our community having the knowledge and skills to respectfully intervene with each other in times of need as well as the awareness to recognize when another is in need.
