    Our Vision

    Through the provision of high-quality, comprehensive, and holistic healthcare, wellness, and support, we aspire to help all students become discerning and educated health consumers and advocates for their own well-being and the well-being of others.

    Our Mission

    Student Health and Support Services enhances the health and well-being of students in support of their learning and success. We do so through:

    • Providing high-quality healthcare and support services as students engage in the university's academic mission
    • Enhancing the quality of life for students — both in and outside of the classroom

    Our Values

    We believe that:

    • Community health and individual well-being are linked.
    • Social justice is part of the continuum of health and wellness.
    • Health is linked to academic and lifelong success.
    • Health is broad, inclusive, holistic, and promoted in the spirit of harm reduction.
    • Health promotion is the responsibility of all campus and community members, including trustees, students, staff, and faculty.
    • Seeking support is a sign of strength.
    • Health and wellness are not merely an absence of disease.
    • Student self-determination is important.
    • Staff teamwork, self-care, and wellness are foundational for community health.
