Our Mission

Our mission is to create, nurture, and promote a University environment supportive of healthy life-long behaviors and enhance academic and personal success. We are here to assist students in skill development that will enhance their personal wellness and ability to succeed, not only in the classroom, but in all areas of life: intellectual, physical, social, spiritual, financial, environmental, and emotional.

One of the main services that the Center for Student Wellness provides is health education. Health education is defined as the principle by which individuals and groups of people learn to behave in a manner conducive to the promotion, maintenance, or restoration of health. The ultimate aim of health education is positive behavioral modification.

Some of our student services include: the provision of relevant health information to students (most often this includes information on stress management, sleepf, nutrition and tobacco use); free HIV and STD testing; alcohol education; and making policy recommendations that support a healthy learning environment.
