Across the state of Minnesota, seventeen two-year and four-year postsecondary schools joined together with Boynton Health Service at the University of Minnesota in spring 2010 to collect information from 34,097 undergraduate and graduate students about their experiences and behaviors in the areas of health insurance and health care utilization, mental health, tobacco use, alcohol and other drug use, personal safety and financial health, nutrition and physical activity, and sexual health. Of the 34,097 students who received a survey, 13,700 students completed the survey, for an overall response rate of 40.2%. This [University of Minnesota Duluth-specific] report highlights the findings of this comprehensive survey and serves as an essential first step in
identifying health and health-related behavior issues affecting college students. Boynton Health Service hopes that the information contained in this report will be helpful to college and university leaders as they strive to develop programs and policies that will assure a safe institutional environment, promote
access to health care and essential services, encourage responsible student decision making and behavior, and contribute to the health, well-being, and academic success of students enrolled in their schools. The survey results are also intended to raise awareness among state and local policymakers and
community leaders concerning the importance of the health of college students to the overall educational, health, and economic status of Minnesota.
