Health & Wellness Services

The departments within the health and wellness center are committed to offering ambulatory care services to meet the individual needs of our students. Others who present to clinical services for medical evaluation (including faculty, staff, visitors, and pediatric patients) are offered emergency first aid, if indicated, and referred to an appropriate facility for diagnosis and treatment. We provide confidential health and counseling services and referrals to appropriate community resources if needed. The staff and faculty encourage students to adopt a lifelong commitment to wellness and healthy living through our educational and outreach programs. Visit the websites of the offices within health and wellness to view the services and resources available to you. We are here to assist you in maintaining your optimal health. We are your "Golden Partners in Wellness"

In response to COVID-19, Health and Wellness Services has made some changes. Appointments are required by all departments. Please select the appropriate department for details regarding scheduling and hours of operation.

Hand Sanitizer stations are placed throughout the Health and Wellness Center.
