Student wellness leads to deeper, more inspired learning. We provide students with safety, security and a sense of belonging, plus programming that supports the development of healthy physical, mental, emotional and social habits. We guide students in their self-discovery as they reach beyond themselves to create change. We work with students as they strive to find balance in their lives, connect to community and make thoughtful life choices.
Supporting Our Students

College is a time of self-discovery, new relationships and intellectual curiosity. But, for some, it can also be a time of personal crises, mental health struggles and academic difficulties. Student Care strives to alleviate these stressors by providing resources and referrals, and helping problem solve within the campus community. Faculty, staff and families can find support and assistance for students too. Working together, Student Care, Counseling & Psychological Services, Student Health Services, academic support programs and other division units offer a myriad of resources to support students through challenges.


Fostering Health

Student Health Services helps students get well and stay well so they can focus on classes and college life, offering resources like a medical advice line, nutrition counseling and injury care. Staff are also health educators and prevention specialists providing important services through the Prevention & Wellness team and the Survivor Advocacy & Resource Center. Division partners work together to foster a holistic view of health that includes staying active, getting enough sleep, eating well and connecting to community. A division collaboration, the Wellness Nook strives to make mental and physical health more accessible to students seeking support.

Well-Being Spotlight: Human Services Resource Center

Classes. Homework. Tests. Friends. Clubs. Events. Now add “next meal” or “place to sleep” to the mix. The Human Services Resource Center knows that there is already enough going on in college without having to worry about meeting basic needs. At the HSRC, food insecure students have access to a well-stocked food pantry, professional-grade kitchen and fresh produce from a community garden. Not to mention showers, washers and dryers and a textbook lending program. No student should go without food, shelter and other essentials, and the HSRC works hard so that they don’t have to.
