HIV/STI Prevention Studies: Linking Learning & Action

The HIV/STI Prevention Studies Office is part of the Health Education & Community Health Studies Department.

Our goal is to provide quality education and career training in addition to HIV/STI prevention programming and activities using a peer education model dedicated to linking learning with action. Harm Reduction and social justice education form the foundation for our classes, programs and activities.

We have been serving the CCSF campus community and beyond through community partnerships to deliver prevention activities, services, and advocacy since the mid 1980’s.

Our classes and certificate programs are designed to prepare students to work in entry level public health and community based positions with a focus on HIV/STI prevention.

Community Leadership Training is a student, faculty, and staff partnership to design and carry out HIV/STI prevention activities with a social justice perspective.

Gender Diversity Project is a student, faculty and staff partnership to educate and advocate for the safety and rights of transgender, gender variant, and gender queer communities at CCSF and beyond.

The Cloud 405 Peer Education Resource Room & Library has free safer sex supplies, Harm Reduction, HIV, AIDS, STI, HEP C resources and referrals, meeting space and computers for student use, and houses the Gender Diversity Project library and resource materials and the Drug and Alcohol Studies program library. The 4th floor of Cloud Hall is also the home of Project SAFE, Project SURVIVE, and Healing for Change and Waypass peer educators and clubs.
