Program description:

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.

The inaugural Beyond Sex Ed program was held in fall of 2016.


Beyond Sex Ed for Sophomores (focused on intimacy & relationships) was be held on April 17th, 2018.
