2018 and Beyond

Beginning in 1998, the now Center for Women and Gender Equity (CWGE) has worked continuously to bring visibility to issues affecting women on campus by facilitating access to resources relevant to women's issues, promoting the integration of women's issues into the campus culture and discourse, and advocating for the removal of barriers that inhibit the full participation of women in the University community. Going forward CWGE honors this legacy and works towards its contemporary vision by supporting its mission with programing and services that advance the understanding and potential for gender equity. The CWGE does this by providing support for students, staff, faculty, and community partners of BGSU to belong, stand out, and go far through programing and services that build community, celebrate excellence, and activate potential. Specifically, programming on power-based violence will be reinvigorated through the new Violence Prevention Center housed in CWGE and new programming on mentoring and leadership development will focus on gender more broadly including Trans communities and engaging men-identified students
