AbstractSexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) are commonly transmitted among college students through risky sexual behavior. Data shows that sexual health behavior habits differ between female identified college students and male identified college students. Results from the University of Arizona Campus Health 2015 Health and Wellness Survey indicate that undergraduate males are less likely than their female counterparts to seek testing for STIs. UA Project Get Tested is a program that aims to address this disparity. A survey was conducted to assess what knowledge UA undergraduate males have about STIs and their perceptions regarding susceptibility towards contracting them. The survey results were consistent with the 2015 Health and Wellness results, showing that 30% of the respondents have not been tested for an STI within the last six months. Using this information, the program plan for UA Project Get Tested was created, containing the goals, objectives, and intended outcomes once implemented and evaluated. Upon successful completion of UA Project Get Tested, STI testing among UA undergraduate males will increase, as well as their knowledge about what makes them susceptible to contracting STIs.
