Developed by the American College Health Association and administered in conjunction with the CSU Chancellor’s Office, the National College Health Assessment (NCHA) survey provides students with a confidential opportunity to share their behaviors, attitudes, and perceptions related to a broad range of relevant health topics. Topics include, but are not limited to: sleep, exercise, nutrition, alcohol and drug use, sexual health, basic needs, and utilization of campus services. Questions related to COVID-19 were also included in the Spring 2021 survey. This survey is distributed every 2-3 years.
NCHA survey results inform campus programs and services and provide valuable insight into the social determinants that impact our students’ academic success and well-being. The ACHA-NCHA II Executive Summary [pdf] from Spring 2018 provides a quick snapshot of student health here at San Jose State University. The Spring 2021 round is currently underway.
