Health Service Mission

The Mission of the Student Health Service is to enhance the educational process by modifying or removing health related barriers to learning and by promoting an optimal level of wellness.

Our goal is not only to treat illness and injury, but also to provide educational programming in Health Promotion. Early care of acute illness and a healthy lifestyle can prevent serious illness, reduce time lost from classes, and keep students looking and feeling well.

Prevention is the key to health, and the primary tool of prevention is health education. Self- responsibility is nurtured through the educational component of each encounter with the goal of developing a clientele that is increasingly independent and able to manage their own health needs to the extent possible.
