Our Mission and Goals

Student Health Services (SHS) is a primary care clinic that specializes in college health. Our healthcare providers prescribe medications and treatment options to our patients based on the patient's presenting symptoms, objective findings and the provider's clinical judgment.  Our providers practice evidenced based medicine and prescribe treatments that are deemed medically necessary. The SHS healthcare team provides thorough patient education to optimize safe, responsible use of prescriptions by all of our patients.

Our mission 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.  Our staff provide 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.

SHS believes that for a campus community to be truly healthy, it must be guided by the values of inclusion, respect, and equality. Intolerance has no place at an institution of higher learning. 
SHS supports all individuals regardless of race, ethnicity, color, culture, national origin, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, abilities, political affiliation, socio-economic or veterans’ status
