Our Mission and Goals

The mission of Student Health Services is to provide an accessible quality program of primary health care services relevant to the needs of eligible members of the University Community.  These services shall include personal health care, health promotion and education, consultation, and educational experiences for advanced level graduate students pursuing careers in the health professions.  The Student Health Services staff provides expert consultation in matters of health and infection control for the University Community.

Our goals are created in the spirit of enhancing educational experience by modifying or removing health related barriers to learning, promoting optimal wellness, and enabling individuals to make informed decisions about health related concerns. We strive to empower members of the University Community to be self-directed and well-informed consumers of health care.

The goals of Student Health Services are to:

  • Provide primary health care services which are accessible, cost-effective, and of high quality to eligible members of the University Community.
  • Facilitate student retention and optimize the student experience by avoiding unnecessary interruption in the student’s education and experience through early and ongoing attention to the health-related concerns.
  • Provide individual and group health education services, which promote healthy lifestyles within the University Community.
  • Serve as an academic resource through the offering of educational experiences for selected students pursuing careers in the health-related professions.
  • Provide all services in a professional, caring, and considerate manner to help ensure that individuals and groups receive the optimum benefit from services rendered.

Student Health Services believes that for a campus community to be truly healthy, it must be guided by the values of multicultural inclusion, respect, and equality. Intolerance has no place at an institution of higher learning. 
Student Health Services supports all individuals regardless of race/ethnicity, color, creed, national origin, religion, gender, genetic information, age, sexual orientation, disability, political affiliation or veterans’ status
