The mission of the Welty Student Health Center is to create an inclusive, welcoming and caring environment where all students will thrive and flourish and to meet every student with respect and dignity, accepting individuals’ unique situations and concerns.  

The Welty Student Health Center staff recognizes and acknowledges the impact of limited medical services to Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) and all marginalized, vulnerable populations. Our staff works one-on-one with all students to identify physical/emotional needs, provide a safe and compassionate environment and educate students regarding college and community resources.

When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot become manifested, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied.
Herophilus of Chalcedon, 335–280 B.C.E., Physician of Alexander the Great
