The University of Minnesota is paying $3,656 for a workshop dedicated to sexual health and women's empowerment, said the New York Post.
The workshop has accumulated some conservative criticism by on-campus groups, like Students for a Conservative Voice. The group's spokesperson said that it is improper for the university to sponsor an event that advocates "a moral standing that is not at all universal."
In a statement made Wednesday, the University responded by saying that "as the state's preeminent education and research institution, the University of Minnesota provides information on a wide range of topics...the vast majority of these topics are not controversial, but some are."
According to the Pioneer Press, the workshop is intended to cover topics from women's body image in the media to multiple orgasms.
The workshop will take place at the St. Paul Student Center Theater on April 10.
