Indiana College Substance Use Survey

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 2019-2020 Indiana College Substance Use Survey at no cost to you!
Don't miss this opportunity to collect important data on students' use of substances, reasons for and consequences of substance use, what students think their peers are doing, and more. You will receive a customized report of your campus results, comparing your results to the statewide data and analyzing the data by gender and age categories.

Data will be aggregated and individual campuses will not be identified in the state report. Only you will have access to your specific campus data. Surveys must be completed in Spring 2020, before your spring break.

If you want to take part in this survey, please let us know today. See the contact information for Eric and Rosie to the right.

The survey is funded by the Indiana Collegiate Action Network through a contract with the Indiana Family & Social Services Administration, and is coordinated by the Indiana Prevention Resource Center at Indiana University.

ICAN is a statewide coalition of colleges and universities in Indiana working to address high risk activities among college students.
