Trojan and Sperling’s Best Places just completed their 8th Annual National College Sexual Health Ranking by evaluating key factors at 140 colleges and universities around the country. For the first time, Princeton University snagged the title of No. 1 on the list, having sat in the Top 10 for three straight years. Today, the entire list of ranked schools is revealed. See where your campus ranks in terms of sexual health!
The accessibility of sexual health resources and information available to students on campus were primary concerns in the ranking process. According to PR Newswire, “Student health centers were graded on services across 11 separate categories, including the following:
-Hours of operation
-Allow drop-ins or require appointments for student scheduling
-Quality of sexual health information and resources on website
-Contraceptive availability — free or at cost
-Condom availability — free or at cost
-HIV testing on-site (On/off campus, cost)
-STI testing on-site (On/off campus, cost)
-Lecture/outreach programs and student peer groups for sexual health education
-Sexual assault programs, resources or services
-Overall website usability and quality
If you want to see your school advance in ranking, speak to health administrators on your campus about Trojan’s E-Tool Kit and Virtual Consultant services. The Trojan E-Tool will be a free, downloadable resource offered to students and school health administrators that contains fact-based insights, tips and ideas they can implement on campus to take sexual health into their own hands.
