The NCHA is a national study that Seattle U participates in every 2 years to assess the state of student health on campus.
The NCHA is sponsored and distributed by the American College Health Association in partnership with Seattle University.
The 2017 NCHA ran January 14 to February 17.
Randomly selected students who are invited to participate via Seattle U email
Seattle U's office of Institutional Research identifies a representative subset (approximately 3000 students) of the total undergraduate, graduate, and law student population that reflects the actual diversity of the student population with regard to race, age (18+), gender, and academic year.
The online survey typically takes about 20-30 minutes to complete and you're encouraged to complete it in one sitting.
Yes, participation is completely voluntary.
Yes, you may answer only some questions, or you may choose not to participate in the survey at all.
To ensure confidentiality, e-mail addresses are destroyed by ACHA before data are compiled and shared with Seattle University. The raw data file will not contain any unique identifiers. If you feel that answering specific demographic questions might reveal your identity, you may leave them blank.
NCHA data can can be found throughout many of our prevention strategies and educational outreach programs. Seattle University also uses the results of this study to inform priorities and funding.
In 2017 the following prizes were awarded to randomly selected participants.
