Wellness Center

Health, Counseling & Disability Services

Our mission is to provide services designed to address the modification and maintenance of successful healthy behaviors through a wellness philosophy. Wellness is a lifelong process. It is the integration of body, mind, and spirit; an appreciation that everything a person does, thinks, feels and believes impacts mental and physical health. We aim to empower students to become health consumers responsible for their well-being and the fulfillment of their personal goals.

The nurse provides college specific nursing care and promotes health, wellness and preventive care for the student population. Care received in the Wellness Center is nurse-directed and based on physician approved clinical protocols.
