Health and Counseling Services Mission

Health and Counseling Services Mission

The mission of Health and Counseling Services is to provide students with counseling, medical and health education services that enrich their personal and academic growth. These services are complemented by a strong training and consultative role that promotes overall health, wellness and safety on our campus.

We believe that the college years are an excellent time to establish healthy attitudes and behaviors that can bring lifelong benefits. Staff provide individual and group counseling, medical consultation and treatment, referral, and extensive wellness programming. Our goal is to help students integrate their college experience, develop healthy coping skills and healthy behaviors, and become educated advocates of their own health and well-being.

Our staff consists of individuals from many disciplines — health, counseling, and education — who specifically have chosen college health as their professional focus and are experienced in responding to the medical, counseling, and wellness needs of today's diverse student body.

As an integral department of the Division of Student Life, Health and Counseling Services is committed to actively providing support and assistance to students in their pursuit of personal growth, including the strengthening of their physical, emotional, intellectual, behavioral and spiritual development.
