National College Health Assessment (NCHA)

The National College Health Assessment (NCHA) is a confidential, online survey used by universities across the country to understand the health issues and concerns of college students. Healthyhorns administers the survey every other year to UT Austin students. The NCHA collects information from students on topics like alcohol, tobacco and other drug use, sexual and mental health, weight and nutrition, and personal safety and violence. Healthyhorns uses survey results to plan programs and services to meet the expressed needs of UT students.
