Report of a Study of Successful Programs of HIV Prevention Education in Colleges and Universities.
O'Connell, William R., Jr.
This report presents the findings of eight case studies of successful HIV prevention education programs on college campuses. The project is part of a national system of integrated activities to prevent HIV infection among post-secondary students. Nearly 100 prevention programs were nominated for recognition for their successful efforts. Part One discusses how successful programs were identified in all types of colleges and in all regions of the country. The programs generally met several of the following criteria: (1) included a conceptual basis relating to particular student populations; (2) contained clearly stated goals addressing risks, behaviors, and skill-building; (3) sustained operation over time; (4) had the involvement of students in educating their peers; (5) gained support from institutional funding; (6) were consistent with values of the institution; (7) included education about HIV in the context of other health risks; and (8) had regular evaluations. Part Two contains the case studies of each of the eight programs selected. All of the programs shared an emphasis on activities that contributed to a sense of community. (JDM)
