BGSU Is A Public Resource Uniquely Positioned To Provide Quality Higher Education
Public institutions are a valuable resource. They educate about 70 percent of the college students in this country, award 60 percent of the Ph.D.s, and conduct more than 60 percent of federally funded research. Public higher education is one of our greatest national achievements. As our world becomes more competitive, complex and technical, education will play a crucial role in the success of our nation and the lives of its citizens.
BG draws learners from all around the world, and is also well-known for serving the students of our region. The University offers opportunities to people from larger cities like Cincinnati, Columbus, Cleveland, Detroit and Chicago, but is still very accessible for students who come from small rural communities across the state. Partnerships with companies such as Cedar Fair Properties allow BGSU to share our knowledge and resources with citizens throughout the state in a collaborative effort to change lives and communities.
Bowling Green State University is paving the way for education in the region. Evidence of our success is also found in national rankings such as the 2016 U.S. News and World Report, which names BGSU a tier-one national university, and from The Economist which ranks the University first among public universities in Ohio for boosting former students’ earnings 10 years after college.
Bowling Green State University has joined an elite selection of national universities with the Carnegie Foundation’s 2015 Community Engagement Classification. Reserved for universities with noteworthy community engagement, the designation is a meaningful affirmation of the University’s value and progress.
BGSU also provides exceptional value with the lowest total educational costs among all universities in Ohio, according to the U.S. Department of Education College Affordability and Transparency Center.
