Mission Statement

PSU Health Services is dedicated to providing compassionate and professional care.  We are committed to promoting, maintaining and improving the health and wellbeing of the entire student.

  • the treatment of all individuals with respect and dignity
  • diversity
  • open, honest, direct communication
