What is the National College Health Assessment (NCHA) health survey?
NCHA stands for National College Health Assessment. It is the survey instrument used by many post-secondary institutions to assess student health habits, behaviours and perceptions. University of Waterloo Campus Wellness conducted the National College Health Assessment Web survey (NCHA-WEB), with the help of the American College Health Association (ACHA) in 2013, 2016 and 2019. The results help us improve health programming, resources and student services on campus.
NCHA data survey results:
The NCHA survey results can be found on the Institutional Analysis & Planning (IAP) website. We recommend reviewing results in comparison with the Canadian Reference Group.
