Counseling Center and Health Services
The Student Health Center is dedicated to promoting health and well-being that is based on the foundations of the Catholic Identity guidelines for University communities. Our work is based upon the principles of Catholic Social Teachings and Catholic Health Care: offering care while respecting and maintaining the dignity of the individual, attending to the needs of the marginalized and disenfranchised, showing respect for workers, caring for the environment, and promoting peace and nonviolence in our world. At St. Thomas University, we have the unique advantage of providing an intimate, family education model, which is exemplified in our motto: ‘developing leaders for life.’ The Student Health Center staff generally holds a master (or above) level certification, in addition to contracted health care services provided by Baptist Health Primary Care.
The Student Health Center aims to promote the physical, emotional, behavioral, and mental health of students in a personalized, supportive, and professional manner as they prepare to become leaders for life in our global community.
