American College Health Association - National College Health Assessment III (ACHA-NCHA III)

The ACHA-NCHA III is a nationally recognized survey that assists in collecting precise data about students’ health habits, behaviors, and perceptions. 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.
