At the Center for Health Education & Wellness, we know that the more we know about the UT community, the better we can empower all Vols to thrive. In order to learn more about Rocky Top, CHEW performs regular campus-wide surveys that gauge health related behaviors, attitudes, and resource-awareness.

The American College Health Association National College Health Assessment (ACHA-NCHA) is a nationally-administered survey that helps us learn more about UT students and benchmark health attitudes and behaviors on our campus against colleges and universities across the nation. ACHA-NCHA assesses a wide range of health issues including:
- Alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use
- Sexual health
- Weight, nutrition, and exercise
- Mental health
- Personal safety and violence
The Core Alcohol and Drug Survey was developed to measure alcohol and other drug usage, attitudes, and perceptions among college students at two and four-year institutions. CHEW administers this survey triennially to assess students’ attitudes, perceptions, and opinions about alcohol and other drugs as well as their own use and consequences of use. You can see the results of our 2018 CORE survey below
