Sexual Health Education

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

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.

Due to the impacts of COVID-19, the Know Your Status monthly event is pending. Please check our social media platforms and newsletter for more information about possible events. However, Campus Health offers free HIV and pregnancy testing and wellness screenings year-round -- all services you would receive at our event.

Traditionally, we collaborate with the Bell Flower Clinic, the Damien Center, and the IU National Center of Excellence in Women’s Health, while offering attendees the opportunity to talk to our Peer Health Educators about sexual wellness topics. Meanwhile, you can check out our Student Wellness Directory for more information and resources.

Get trained as a Condom Club member

Led by the Health and Wellness Promotion team, 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 through Zoom and become an exclusive member. The Peer Health Educators host multiple Zoom trainings throughout the semester. 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.

Recurring Condom Club membership training sessions will be held, but students will need to register prior to the training. Members can pick up pre-made to-go bags or submit an order ahead of time if specific items are needed. Students can pick up these items in suite 350 in the Campus Center during the scheduled times marked on their order. Students can register for training or submit a special order at go.iupui.edu/condoms.
