Sexuality, Integrity, and the University 2019

Join us in Princeton on November 8th and 9th, 2019, as we gather for our twelfth Sexuality, Integrity, and the University conference!

Every year Sexuality, Integrity, and the University brings together hundreds of students, scholars, and experts from across the country to equip the college students with the best academic resources and arguments they need to bring the message of love and fidelity back to their campuses.

Conference participants will find ample opportunity to network with and learn from each other and can attend sessions by experts who will present us with their recent research and findings on the topics of marriage, family, and sexual integrity.
