Please contact Emily Boyk at or at (567) 395-5610.

In addition, the Office of Student Life has a graduate intern from BGSU that works with programming related to sexual misconduct. She is available to come to your class to lead a one-hour program designed to teach students how they can be an active bystanders. Many people recognize a problematic situation when they see one, but don’t know what they can do to help. This program will spend time helping students identify problematic situations, teaching about steps and options for interventions, and providing time for students to consider and discuss the ways they feel they can best intervene as individuals. Focus will be on situations relating to sexual misconduct, relationship violence, and mental health.

For more information or to schedule the program for your class, please e-mail Alex Lewin at
