Sexual Health Education

You won’t find preaching or judgment from us. Just the facts and the strength to make your own choices.

Your parents might not like it, but we’re going to talk about sex. Our goal is to encourage you to make decisions about sex that are consistent with your personal values whether that means practicing abstinence or being sexually active. Whatever your decision, we want you to know the facts that can help you protect yourself and others.

With support from Health and Wellness Promotion and others on campus, you’ll learn how to combat peer pressure, build healthy relationships, and prevent unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.

Sex positivity is the idea that all sex, as long as it is healthy and explicitly consensual, is a positive thing. That means taking care of yourself physically with resources like our free monthly STI/HIV testing, as well as maintaining your mental and emotional wellness.

Know your status

A key part of maintaining your sexual health is protecting yourself and others from sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Nearly 10 million new STIs diagnosed annually are among people aged 15–24. Don’t add to that statistic.

As part of the monthly Know Your Status event, you can take advantage of free HIV and STI testing. Testing is confidential and conducted by The Damien Center, The Bell Flower Clinic, and the IU National Center of Excellence in Women’s Health.

Get trained as a Condom Club member

Two students listen to an instructor.

Led by Peer Educators, Condom Club provides resources for sexual health and sexuality to IUPUI students. The initiative also distributes sexual health supplies on campus.

You have the opportunity to complete the brief, interactive Condom Club training and become an exclusive member. After giving verbal consent to participate, Peer Educators will provide educational instruction for using different types of condoms, barrier methods, and contraception as well as safer sex strategies. They’ll also share STI testing information.

This is not your junior high sex ed class

Health and Wellness Promotion offers sexual education presentations that are ideal for classes and student organizations. These workshops can be tailored to fit your needs and time requirements. You’ll come away from our presentations with the knowledge and skills to help you be healthy for a lifetime.
