We’re working hard at the Center for Research and Education on Gender and Sexuality to change the way America thinks about gender and healthy sexuality. Here are some of the projects we’re focusing on now.
Every summer we gathers leading voices on sexuality issues to prepare advocates, students and researchers to embed the concepts of sexual literacy and lifelong sexual well-being into the work they do. Attendees receive college credit, and explore historical and current issues surrounding sexuality through activities, lectures and seminars. The 2016 Summer Institute’s theme is “Intersectionality: Navigating Sex, Relationships, and Identities”.
Researchers at CREGS conduct projects examining a wide range of subjects including sexual health, gender equality, health disparities and HIV prevention. The impact of CREGS’s work is far reaching. Our researchers consistently garner professional recognition and our work has contributed significantly to the national and international sexual research agenda.
Each semester CREGS hosts several seminar lectures with speakers from various fields, with a goal of bringing students, faculty, researchers, and the public together to share knowledge.
Throughout the year CREGS hosts various expert-led training, maintains an SFSU student internship program, and partners with other organizations to offer special events.
CREGS has recently partnered with the SF LGBTQ Speakers Bureau. In addition to the several staff that volunteer with the bureau, CREGS has a student internship dedicated to assisting with program planning, evaluation, and social media.
