BGSU is gearing up for the second-annual Anti-Hazing Summit on Aug.1, 2023, which is set to feature a discussion by the parents of Stone Foltz, a sophomore who died following a tragic hazing incident in 2021.

The second summit will focus on hazing prevention, innovative resources and best strategies to eliminate hazing. BGSU will welcome K-12 students and professionals across Ohio including practitioners for Greek life, student groups, athletic coaches, volunteers and various BGSU staff.

“We are looking forward to continued dialogue and actionable planning to further our work in eradicating hazing across our state and nation,” said Ben Batey, BGSU Chief Health and Wellness Officer and Hazing Prevention Coordinator.

The 2022 summit, which was an all-day event, included breakfast and lunch, keynote speeches, round table discussions and activities aimed at reducing hazing.

The summit will take place at the Bowen-Thompson Student Union, and schedule information will be updated closer to the event on the BGSU website at closer to the event.
