The Student Health Center subscribes to a definition of health that includes the attainment, maintenance and lifelong commitment to an optimum level of wellness. This philosophy is rooted in the Jesuit educational tradition in which there is integration of learning with the development of the person.
The Student Health Center strives to assist students in the pursuit of their academic goals and personal development by identifying and addressing health situations which impede student learning. This mission is served by the provision of high quality health care as well as health promotion that facilitates the development of the whole person.
The Student Health Center supports all initiatives to create a campus climate guided by the values of cultural inclusion, respect, equality and equity. Such a climate is essential to college health. Consistent with those values, the Student Health Center rejects all forms of intolerance and subtler forms of discriminatory conduct with respect to: age; gender identity, including transgender; marital status; physical size; psychological/physical/learning disability; race/ethnicity; religious, spiritual or cultural identity; sex; sexual orientation; socioeconomic status; or veteran status.
The Student Health Center is open Monday- Friday from 8:30 am- 4:30 pm. The center will operate administratively, but not for patient care, from December 14 through January 18.
