Welcome to Student Health and Counseling

Student Health and Counseling (SHAC) provides access to high-quality health care in a safe, respectful and confidential environment and promotes healthy behaviors and lifestyle choices. We serve all members of the University community with the goal of improving both the academic and emotional experiences of our students. The Counseling Center is available to help students:resolve personal, social, and academic concerns; obtain appropriate professional care during times of personal stress or crisis; work through developmental stages of young adulthood. The Health Center provides students with quality healthcare services that integrate individual health needs, health education, prevention, clinical treatment for illness and injury, and the enhancement of students' knowledge about healthy lifestyle choices.
