UChicago Data Collection

The Health Promotion and Wellness department utilizes data from student surveys to assess student behavior and plan for the needs of UChicago students. The following are data tools that are used to evaluate alcohol use and other behaviors.

American College Health Association - National College Health Assessment (ACHA-NCHA) is a nationally recognized research survey to assist in collecting specific data about students’ health habits, behaviors and perceptions:

  • Alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use
  • Sexual health
  • Weight, nutrition, and exercise
  • Mental health
  • Personal safety and violence

This survey is administered every 2 years and undergraduate and graduate students are selected randomly to participate in the survey. Learn more about the ACHA-NCHA survey here.
