Philosophy of Care

The keywords for care at the Center for Health & Wellbeing are respect, dignity, and collaboration.

We believe in non-judgmental, collaborative, student-centered care, based on respect for the dignity of the individual. Our focus on individualized care means that we take your economic, cultural, ethnic and spiritual background into account, as well as your values, developmental level, and interpersonal support systems.

We think that people have the right to accessible, cost-effective, high-quality health care—including diagnosis, treatment, education, counseling, advocacy, and coordination of services.

We take seriously our responsibility to respond to important public health issues that may affect the campus community.

We demonstrate a high level of professional commitment by supporting staff education, collegial relationships, peer review, and acceptance of accountability in our practices.
