Sexual Health

What is Sexual Health?

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines sexual health as a state of physical, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality.  It requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence.

Sexual Health services within the Student Life Student Wellnes Center are dedicated to:

  • Assisting students in making decisions consistent with their beliefs and values
  • Providing students with accurate sexual health information
  • Aiding students in developing skills that encourage healthy relationships (e.g., condom and barrier negotiation)
  • Encouraging sexually active students to utilize risk reduction measures (e.g., abstinence, contraceptive use, STI/HIV prevention)
