Sexual health is a broad concept that varies greatly among cultures, subcultures, and individuals within those groups.

The World Health Organization defines sexual health as "a state of physical, mental, and social well-being in relation to sexuality. It requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination, and violence."

Student Affairs strives to provide quality, compassionate resources to students as they navigate their personal health, sexual identity, gender identity, and sexual behavior. We encourage students to speak openly to our health care providers and other professional staff about their sexual health concerns. Respect for diversity is expected by all Penn State community members.
