SU-HASAPP organizes campus and community workshops. Staff and student volunteers facilitate workshops to educate students and community residents about HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis and substance abuse prevention. Student and resident centered workshops are conducted across the campus and throughout the community. Workshops can also be provided upon request by campus and community groups and organizations. The workshops are available for all students, but target entering freshmen, athletes, fraternity and sorority members, because of their higher than average risk for drug abuse and experimentation with sex. The program coordinator and student volunteers conduct the sessions and focus on providing accurate information concerning HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis transmission, the importance of communicating with one’s partner about sex, negotiating safer sex with partners, condom demonstration, barriers to condom use, how to address barriers to condom use and the role drug use plays in risky behaviors. The presentation can be done in 50 (short version) or two 90 minute sessions depending on time constraints. The longer version allows from greater participation on the part of attendees who may participate in a series of exercises (practice negotiating condom use and/or identifying myths concerning HIV/AIDS Hepatitis/STDs). Research conducted by Duncan, et. al (2002) found that lack of communication and poor skills in negotiating condom use were major barriers to safer sex practices for Southern University students.
