The office of Health and wellness exists to support students and their success. We are here to help students achieve their academic goals by encouraging a balance of health and well-being. We do our best to ensure the college experience is positive, rewarding and successful. Students have access to a safe place to talk and get help dealing with anything as it relates to their personal health and/or wellness; anything from medical complications to stress or life issues and struggles. Students can receive stress and time management tips as well as practice self-care and compassion. Students can also receive assistance connecting to campus and community members to meet their needs as well as receive resources and referrals. We also have a CARE report or “IR” incident report which allows us to have a transparent and universal referral process available to the campus community for students of concern and can remain anonymous.
