Survey Details

The College Health Salary and Staffing Survey gathers the most recent information on salary and staffing levels from the field and is a continuation of the series of survey instruments that ACHA uses to formally gather data on college health practices. The survey report informs college health administrators on the head-count and full-time-equivalency for the full range of college health professional positions and their maximum, minimum, and mean compensation rates.

When summarized by several demographic characteristics (e.g., enrollment, regional affiliation, institutional control), these data can provide a framework for customary, comparative practices across the whole of the field. Additionally, these data will continue to assist ACHA in quantifying the overall contribution that college health makes to higher education. As with all ACHA benchmarking surveys, all data is kept confidential and summarized in aggregate form only. Individual institutional data will not be released.

If you have any questions or comments about this survey, please email ACHA Chief Research Officer Mary Hoban, PhD, MCHES, at

We thank all of those who participated in the survey.
