Beyond Sex Ed

Beyond Sex Ed: Consent and Sexuality at Stanford is a transformative experience for incoming first-year undergraduates at Stanford, which features personal stories from current students, supported by a framework for thinking about sexuality interpersonally and culturally.  

Students collaborated with Stanford’s Sexual Assault and Relationship Abuse Office to create this program, which asks students to intentionally develop their own sexual citizenship. Beyond Sex Ed for first-year undergraduates provides a thoughtful space to learn about, discuss and share stories of sexuality, reflecting students’ lived experiences as well as the surrounding systems of culture that influence those experiences. The program’s underlying philosophy is to engage the culture from the inside, out: cultivating empathy, agency, and growth in community.

NSO 2019: Beyond Sex Ed is date is TBA. in Memorial Auditorium. NSO nametag required. Dorm Discussion to follow.


Beyond Sex Ed: Part 2

"Everyone wants intimacy [with friends, family, partners]; no one knows how to get it” —Stanford student

We set goals for school, for jobs, for stress-reduction, for physical health. But what about goals for our relationships and deepening intimacy?

Beyond Sex Ed Part 2 is for sophomores/juniors/seniors to check in about our relationships — with family, in friendship, in partnership, and in community. What’s going well? What’s not working? What do you hope for?

If 2019 could be your best year yet, what would your relationships be like?

Come listen to stories from your peers, reflect on relationships in your life, and learn skills of intimacy.
