Supporting Data

In the Spring of 2012 the American College Health Association-National College Health Assessment was conducted at the University of Nebraska Kearney where 3000 students were selected randomly to participate. The ACHA-NCHA has been conducted every two years at UNK since 2002 and is used to gather health information about UNK students in order to develop better services and program that in turn, will help them persist  while at UNK. The following data were additional questions added to the assessment in order to better understand students sentiments on tobacco use on campus.
