Student Health Services provides holistic and high quality patient-centered health care to support student’s success and advance their well-being and other members of the University community.
Student Health Services seeks to be a premier and nationally-recognized integrated health care system that anticipates and responds to the holistic health and wellness needs of the Carolina Community. We empower the community to be self-directed, well-informed consumers of health care.
Student Health Services will be recognized nationally for its commitment to enhancing the health of the campus community; providing exceptional quality of care; delivering outstanding access and value; embracing evidence-based practices; providing exceptional medical and health education and supporting highly-skilled, knowledgeable and compassionate staff.
Student Health Services believes that for a campus community to be truly healthy, it must be guided by the values of multicultural inclusion, respect and equality. Intolerance has no place at an institution of higher learning. Student Health Services supports all individuals regardless of race, color, regional or national origin, age, gender identity, religion, disability, illness, veteran status or sexual orientation. We encourage the Carolina Community to be actively involved in the struggle to end oppression, prevent bias-related violence in our campus community and take action to eradicate injustice.
