McKinley's Sexual Health Program is a space on campus where students can access information about sexual health and sexuality. Such a space where students of all races/ethnicities, genders, and sexual orientations can find information that allows them to feel comfortable and confident making healthy, informed sexual decisions.

All levels of knowledge and experience are welcome. If you have questions, we have answers.

Outreach

One of our goals is to normalize conversations about sexual health and sexuality; we do so by meeting you where you’re at. The Sexual Health Education Program participates in awareness events and campaigns, tables at health fairs, and presents to students, faculty/staff, other RSOs, advocacy groups, or organizations.

Sexual health workshops are available upon request. If you have an idea for a new outreach event, please contact McKinley’s Sexual Health Educator at 217-333-2700.

Students can access condoms, latex barriers, lubricants, pregnancy tests, yeast infection medication and other over-the-counter supplies at no cost at the Self Care Stations. Emergency contraception (Plan B One-Step) is available at the McKinley Pharmacy and Self-care Stations.
