OUR VISION

To cultivate optimal health and lifelong well-being for every UConn student

 

Our Mission

Student Health and Wellness (SHaW) supports the optimal well-being of all UConn students by providing the highest quality compassionate care and exceptional health and wellness programs. 

           

Our Values

Diversity, Health Equity and Inclusion

We dedicate ourselves to learning, valuing diverse experiences, and providing outstanding services to UConn students while appreciating their significant identities such as race, ethnicity, religious affiliation or not, gender identity, level of ability, or other salient identities. We promote social justice throughout UConn and the broader global community.

Patients’ Rights and Responsibilities

As stated as the first tenet of our Patients’ Rights and Responsibilities: We believe you have a right to be treated with respect, consideration and dignity, as well as be free from all forms of abuse and harassment on the basis of an race, color, ethnicity, religious creed, age, sex, marital status, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, genetic information, physical or mental disability (including learning disabilities, intellectual disabilities, and past or present history of mental illness), veteran’s status, prior conviction of a crime, gender identity or expression, or membership in any other protected classes.

Exceptional Services

Student-Centered Approach

  • We provide services that are respectful of and responsive to individual student preferences, needs, and values.
  • We listen to, inform, and empower students to be involved in their health and wellbeing in ways that are meaningful and valuable to them.
  • We provide inclusive services that welcome all students with dignity and respect
  • We encourage students to evaluate and advocate for their health and well-being
  • We support students to be actively engaged to allow them to further develop knowledge and skills and to be a responsible consumer of their own healthcare

Community Engagement and Social Justice

  • We work to promote an environment at UConn that gives everyone the opportunity to reach their best health.
  • We are committed to creating a fair and equitable distribution of opportunities and services to measurably improve the health of student populations.
  • We seek to form collegial relationships where communication, consensus building and teamwork are valued.
  • We strive to provide skillful guidance of collective efforts to achieve public health goals.
  • We are committed to innovation in meeting the evolving and complex health and wellness needs of our students.
