Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are vulnerable traumatic incidents that an individual can endure throughout their childhood. ACEs can negatively impact an individual in many ways, which includes engaging in high-risk sexual behaviors. An electronic self-report survey will examine ACEs and high-risk sexual behavior among NKU students. This study anticipates finding an individual with a higher ACE score having more high-risk behaviors. These results will inform the NKU community about the effects that ACEs and high-risk sexual behaviors have on an individual and the need to provide appropriate services.
