What We Do

The Wellness Center is a one-stop center that assists students with non-academic issues that can get in the way of their educational success.

We help connect and refer students to necessary resources for housing and utility assistance, food insecurity, homelessness, financial support and benefits, mental health, and medical care.

We provide an area where students can come de-stress, and a listening ear for students experiencing personal struggles. If students are experiencing a crisis and need immediate help, we provide short-term counseling with referrals to mental health agencies.

Our mission is to help students achieve success and wellness in all aspects of their lives, not just in the classroom.
