The College Risk Behaviors Study (CRBS ) is an annual survey administered during the spring semester to a random sample of full-time, undergraduate, University of Delaware students. Each was asked via email to follow an enclosed link and complete the online survey. These students were offered $5 in flex credit as compensation for their time.
The CRBS has been administered for many years, beginning in 1993 as part of the Harvard School of Public Health College Alcohol Study. It continued from 1997 to 2004 as part of the University of Delaware’s participation in the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation “A Matter of Degree” Program. From 2007 to 2010 it was part of UD’s participation in the MOSAIC Program funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). From 2011 to the present it has been sponsored by the University’s participation in the Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant to the State of Delaware, also from SAMHSA.
