Mission and Philosophy

Concordia Health Services supports the mission and goals of Student Services and Concordia University.  The mission of Health Services is to support and enhance the educational process and to influence student success and retention by modifying or removing health related barriers to learning, teaching, work and play.

Health Services is guided by a philosophy which acknowledges the connection between intellectual development, personal growth, and physical and emotional health.

The department is directed by three principle areas of intervention:  clinical care and prevention of illness, health education and consultation to the university.

As an integral resource to the university community, Health Services seeks to promote well-being and to empower students, staff and faculty to be responsible, self-directed and informed consumers of health-care services.
