It captures a wide variety of key health and wellness related topics including: substance use, sexual health, nutrition, exercise, mental health, personal safety, and preventive health practices. NDSU participated for the first time in the Spring of 2021 and will continue implementing on a cyclical basis.

North Dakota Student Wellness and Perception Survey

The North Dakota Student Wellness and Perception Survey (NDSWAPS) was developed to provide an insight into the current well-being of North Dakota College Students, ranging from their experiences using alcohol / other drugs to mental health symptomology and unwanted sexual experiences. The aim of gathering data through NDSWAPS is to inform and develop prevention and intervention efforts specific to students in North Dakota, in addition to students on each institutions campus, within the North Dakota University System.
