The Jesuit Catholic tradition believes in the importance of integrity and that sex education should never be reduced to a mere communication of information. Rather, it must always be placed in a setting where the rich human, personal and spiritual values of sexuality are explored and given meaning.

The University of San Francisco offers a range of reproductive health, sexual transmitted infection (STI) and sexual violence prevention resources designed to promote sexual health as a state of physical, emotional, mental, spiritual and social well being. We believe sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, free of pressure, discrimination and violence.

For more information on Sexual Assault Prevention, resources and reporting please visit the Title IX Office Webpage.
