Wesleyan Health Study

Take a few minutes out of your day to reflect on your sex, drug, and health habits (or lack thereof); participate in the Wesleyan Health Survey. Check your inbox for the email from the NCHA for the link:

The National College Health Assessment Web survey (NCHA-Web) sponsored by the American College Health Association (ACHA), would still like to hear from you. The NCHA-Web is a survey designed to assess student health behaviors in order to provide better services and support for Wesleyan students. You may benefit by knowing that you have assisted in providing accurate information regarding health behaviors on your campus.

Survey results will be used to develop health programs for Wesleyan. We encourage you to complete the survey in one sitting, which typically takes about 20-30 minutes. There may be some personal discomfort with the content of certain questions. For example, there are questions regarding illegal behaviors such as illegal substance use and sexual behavior. Your participation is completely voluntary and confidential. Your name or email address will never be associated with your responses. You may answer only some questions, or you may choose not to participate in the survey at all.

You have been assigned an ID number in order for the secure Internet server to manage your online survey input. This number is imbedded in your URL address. To ensure confidentiality, ID numbers and e-mail addresses are destroyed before data are compiled and shared with your college or university.

Data transmission is encrypted and firewall securities are in place. After you submit the survey to the secure server, you will receive a message thanking you for taking the NCHA-Web. The final survey responses will be housed at ACHA. Again, the version of the data set that is forwarded to your institution will not include personal identification such as e-mail addresses or ID numbers. More directions follow as you link to the web site.

For more information, you may visit the project website at http://www.acha-ncha.org/overview.html. If you have questions, please contact Michael Whitcomb, Director of Institutional Research, whose office is coordinating administration of Wesleyan’s participation in this project, at mwhitcomb@wes.
