Dear Social Work Educators,
Good afternoon, I hope you are well. I am a doctoral student at the University of Pittsburgh School of Social Work conducting research on sexual health curricula within social work programs. The goal of this study is to better understand how sexual health content is integrated into social work education. The study consists of an anonymous online, self-administered survey about sexual health content in your teaching. Completion of the survey will take no more than 20 minutes. Participants with a completed survey will be given a random chance of being chosen to receive complimentary CSWE APM 2021 registration. We hope to use the findings from the study to improve the integration of sexual health content in social work education. Please take a moment to complete the survey here.

To have wide representation from across the field of social work education, we would like to request your assistance in recruiting social work educators to participate in the study. As such, would you please share the attached study information with members of your association and ask them to please share the information at their respective institutions. Thank you in advance for your assistance. We look forward to sharing the results of our study with you and the larger social work education community.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me directly. The study was approved by the IRB at the University of Pittsburgh (STUDY21020007). The faculty mentors for this study are Drs. Darren Whitfield and Shaun M. Eack, Associate Dean for Research.
Thank you for your assistance.
