ACHA: The Influence of Environmental Factors on the Emotional Well-Being of Students, Staff, & Faculty

By the YOU at College Team, 9/27/2022

A new study from the¬†American College Health Association (ACHA), with contributions from our Content Manager, James Larcus, explores health disparities related to emotional well-being, as well as the influence of environmental factors that impact mental health, among students, faculty, and staff in higher education. Using survey data from over 7,900 students, staff, and faculty across nine volunteer universities, this report aims to understand how perception of one’s environment is an important factor for predicting emotional well-being.
