Surveys

College Student Health Survey

The College Student Health Survey (CSHS) was designed by Boynton Health Service to give postsecondary institutions a comprehensive look at the health of their students. The survey measures eight key areas: Health Insurance and Health Care Utilization, Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drug Use, Tobacco Use, Personal Safety, Financial Health, Nutrition and Physical Activity, and Sexual Health. Boynton Health Service has administered the College Student Health Survey at the University of Minnesota and partner institutions since 1995.

Special Reports

Evaluation of Minnesota College Campus Tobacco Use Policies and Student Tobacco Use Rates 2013 (PDF)
Through the State Health Improvement Project (SHIP), in conjunction with Boynton Health Service (BHS), a tobacco-free policy evaluation was conducted at academic post-secondary institutions statewide. The evaluation data was paired with information about tobacco use and exposure rates from the 2013 College Student Health Survey (CSHS) to determine whether having a smoke- or tobacco-free campus policy was associated with the outcomes of past 12-month, current, and daily tobacco use, percentage of users making a quit attempt within the past year, and secondhand smoke exposure among students on campus.

Minnesota Postsecondary Institutions' Tobacco-use Policies and Changes in Student Tobacco-use Rates (2007–2013) (PDF)
The purpose of this report was to examine changes in student tobacco-use, on-campus secondhand smoke exposure, and on-campus tobacco-use rates with respect to changes in tobacco-use policies over time. This task was accomplished using multiple cross-sectional examinations of the outcomes for each school as obtained in the CSHS between 2007 and 2013 as well as data from the SHIP tobacco-free policy evaluation conducted in 2013.
