About Us


To promote lifetime wellness through collaboration, education, and innovation.


The vision of Student Health & Counseling Services is to nurture the development of a student community that is flourishing intellectually, physically, and psychologically – empowered by the acquisition of knowledge, skills and healthy lifestyles.

SHCS aims to enhance students’ educational experience by addressing health-related barriers to learning, enabling students to make informed health decisions, and promoting the seven dimensions of wellness – Intellectual, Emotional, Environmental, Physical, Career/ Financial, Spiritual, and Socio-Cultural.
