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.
