TUSH Study

The Technology Use and Sexual Health study is a collaborative research project between the University of Georgia and the University of South Carolina. This survey study examines how college students use social technologies, including cell phones and social media, both in general and as they relate to health issues. It also explores issues of sexual health, including use of dating apps and “sexting.” Data collection for the 2015-2016 school year is complete, with plans to continue administering the survey on a yearly basis. Publications and research reports are forthcoming.
