Sexual Health Resources


Fields, Cheryl D., Black Issues in Higher Education


On CD-Rom

Looking for a high-tech wayto educate students about sex? The Bacchus & Gamma Peer Education Network has developed a CD-ROM that just might be an answer to your prayers. Sex in the CD is an interactive computer "adventure" designed to engage students in discussions about safe sex, healthy relationships and sexual identity.

Divided into three interactive environments, the "Friends & Lovers Coffee House," the "HIStories & HERStories bookstore" and "Club in the Mix," the CD offers a collection of games, quizzes and personal testimonies from "real" students. The CD jacket also includes a complementary handbook to help users navigate the CD and contains a list of "Sex Links," to other resources they can visit on the Web.

The CD's cyber host is a young woman who appears to be African American or biracial and there are other people of color featured amongthe personal testimonies. The HIS/HERStories section seems a bit preachy to this user and is surprisingly less dynamic than one might expect (featuring still photos and text that fades in and out duringthe narration), but, overall the CD is worth checking out.

Copies of Sex in the CD can be ordered at or call (303) 871-0901.

Online

* The American College Health Association site features a variety of resources concerning student health. While the site is mainly designed to serve the organization's professional membership, many of the resources featured on the site are available to the public. The publications division includes several resources designed to improve the quality of care offered by college health centers. One publication of particular interest is Health Programming in College/University Settings for Students of Color, a monograph prepared by the organization's Task Force on Ethnic Minority Involvement.
