The study involves a randomized selection of NCAA Division I, II and III institutions — four institutions from each division — comprising 2,000 student-athletes nationally and utilizing the online Peer Education Concussion Manual developed in the first part of the CHC study. The goal of this multi-site study is to determine if the online peer education model will work at institutions other than CHC.  If the data from this study supports the model, the NCAA will consider endorsing the CHC Peer Education Model for all NCAA institutions. The goal of this model is to increase concussion knowledge and change the culture of concussion on sports teams.

The College continues to educate its athletic teams — this year’s focus is men’s and women’s basketball. To date, the following CHC teams have completed the Peer Education program — men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s lacrosse and sprint football.
