We envision a world where all young adults thrive with the support of the residential communities, whose teams are dedicated to promoting and advocating for mental wellness to facilitate personal fulfillment and academic success.


Together as a Coalition, we are committed to better understanding our residents, encouraging open dialogues and raising public awareness about the importance of mental wellness and its impact on students as they work to realize their full potential along their college journey and beyond.

The 2023 Thriving College Student Survey was conducted in the U.S. in October 2023 by Ipsos, a world leader in research. It was commissioned and by the College Student Mental Wellness Advocacy Coalition and the Hi, How Are You Project with support from The Jed Foundation.

The first Thriving College Student Index Report was published in 2022 and serves as the baseline for this year’s data comparisons. Its purpose is to provide resident insights on mental wellness that help to inform mental wellness programs for college and university students, especially at off-campus residential communities.
