Surveys and Data Collection
The American College Health Association - National College Health Assessment II
The ACHA-NCHA II is a nationally recognized research survey that assesses a range of health issues among college students, including:
Alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use
Weight, nutrition, and exercise
Personal safety and violence
Lehigh University has participated in the ACHA-NCHA II annually in the spring since 2013. The goal of this data collection is to gain a profile of health habits, behaviors, perceptions and trends among Lehigh students and to benchmark against national data.
Once a year, undergraduate and graduate students are randomly selected to participate in this confidential, web-based survey. Lehigh’s average response rate is 21%. If you are selected, please help us in our efforts to provide every member of our community with the very best health services by taking the time to complete the ACHA-NCHA II.
