Health and Counseling Services

The Jay Johnson Wellness Center

The Jay Johnson Wellness Center promotes the development of the whole person and encourages a lifestyle in students and the university community which integrates emotional, intellectual, physical, social, spiritual, and vocational well-being. Through a conscious, professional, and caring process, the Wellness Center staff assist students in modifying or removing barriers to learning and empower them to discern and pursue their own personal mission. Student Health and Counseling Services staff embody the Lasallian charism and work as a team to fulfill this mission — responsively through a holistic approach to all dimensions of well-being and proactively through educating, motivating, and serving as liaisons for students among other university and community services.

Cost

There is no fee for on-site services or laboratory tests. The cost of off-campus services (i.e. referrals, prescription medications, treatments, supplies, testing) is the responsibility of the student.

Confidentiality

All Wellness Center contacts and records are held in strict confidence. Information will not be released to parents, faculty, administration, peers, or anyone else without the student’s consent. An exception is made if a life-threatening situation arises.
