About the NCHA

The National College Health Assessment (NCHA), is a nationally recognized research survey sponsored by the American College Health Association (ACHA). 

Elon University is participating in the NCHA to assess student health behaviors in order to provide better services and support for students.  Student participation in the NCHA is critical in helping Elon develop wellness programs and services that meet our campus needs.  Participation is completely voluntary, confidential, and only takes about 20-30 minutes.  

Why does the National College Health Assessment matter?

College students represent a diverse population with specific health risks and needs. Having current, relevant data can enhance our programs and strengthen health, wellness, academic, and other student support services.

The NCHA data provides a snapshot of the most prevalent college health issues such as:

  • Alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use
  • Sexual health
  • Weight, nutrition, and physical activity
  • Sleep health
  • Mental health (stress, anxiety, depression)
  • Injury prevention
  • Personal safety and violence (including sexual violence)
