MIT Surveys

MIT Health & Wellness Surveys

MIT periodically invites the community to participate in surveys that cover a range of health and wellness topics. A few of the campus-wide surveys on this topic are listed below.

Survey Results
2015 Healthy Minds Study

In April 2015, the Chancellor asked students to respond to the Healthy Minds Study, which examines mental health and related issues as well as how students engage with support services on campus. Hosted by the University of Michigan, this confidential study has been run at more than 100 colleges and universities, which enables us to make useful comparisons with other schools.


2014 Community Attitudes on Sexual Assault

In late Spring 2014, the Chancellor sponsored a survey to understand how sexual assault affects the MIT community. The aim of this survey was to collect information on some social and cultural aspects of MIT culture, attitudes and opinions on different types of social behavior, and experiences in different types of sexual situations, including those that are nonconsensual. The survey was sent to all current MIT students and recent alumni.

In Fall 2013, the Office of Community Development and Substance Abuse and Community Wellness at MIT Medical invited all enrolled students, undergraduate and graduate, to participate in the American College Health Association’s National College Health Assessment (NCHA) survey. The purpose of the survey was to gather information and to help understand how MIT students engage in various components of health and wellness.
2005 Medical Task Force Surveys

The Task Force sponsored surveys to allow all members of the MIT community the opportunity to express their views before offering any recommendations.
