Campus Health Needs Assessment Participation 

The Campus Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) is governed by the CHNA Steering Committee. The CHNA Steering Committee consists of individuals representing diverse areas across the university who meet on a regular basis to monitor the progress of the CHNA. This committee gives direction to the entire assessment process and makes recommendations to the assessment committees on how to implement each assessment. They also identify potential partners (staff, faculty and students) to engage in each assessment by working with the Student Health Advisory Board (SHAB) and other campus groups.

The groups listed below were involved in planning the 2018 CHNA process.

We are currently in the process of creating new assessment committees for this cycle. If you are interested in participating, please register here.
