Opportunity to Participate in Student Health Survey

February 26, 2016

If you are currently enrolled as a full-time graduate student, you will have received an email from the National College Health Assessment inviting you to participate in an online survey. The ACHA- NCHA is a survey about health behaviors that provides us with data about our student body. Lewis & Clark relies on this data to develop and strengthen prevention programs, improve outreach and health services, and advocate for resources. 

If you have already completed the survey, thank you.  If you haven’t received an invitation, please check your inbox and/or SPAM folder for an email from “National College Health Assessment” with the subject line: “Lewis & Clark College Student Health Survey.” The message may be filtered to SPAM for students that forward their lclark account to personal email accounts.

The ACHA-NCHA is conducted nation-wide; more than 825,000 students at more than 550 colleges and universities have participated in these surveys since 2000. By completing this survey, you help us provide you and other students with appropriate, positive resources and opportunities. By taking the survey, you will ALSO be entered in a drawing for one of three $100.00 Visa gift cards.  

Your participation is completely voluntary and confidential. To ensure confidentiality, e-mail addresses are destroyed by ACHA before data are compiled and shared with the college. The raw data file that is shared with the researchers will not contain any unique identifiers. If you feel that answering specific demographic questions might reveal your identity, you may leave them blank. You may answer only some questions, or you may choose not to participate in the survey at all. Any reports or publications based on this research will use only group data and will not identify you or any individual as being affiliated with this project.

If you have questions about ACHA-NCHA, please contact Melissa Osmond at 503-768-7112, or

Thank you,

Office of Health Promotion and Wellness
