Mission

Mission: Our Reason for Being

The University Health Center exists to advance the well-being of students and other members of the University community and supports student success and resilience by providing:

primary and specialty health care,
education and prevention focused services, and
research which contributes to health knowledge and skills.

We strive for excellence in services that are student-centered, respectful, accessible, and offer satisfaction and value. As a campus health resource, the health center promotes individual and community health, teaches health and wellness, participates in research which increases knowledge about health care and student health needs, and participates in the education and training of future health care professionals.

Vision: Our Aim for Excellence

The University Health Center will be the overwhelming choice for high quality health and wellness services. We will positively influence the physical, social, emotional and intellectual well-being of the University community in a way that contributes to the success of our students.

Our dedication to excellence and continuous service improvement will be shaped by the needs of our customers, our healing environment, new technology, and the science and art of medicine and counseling.
