Mission & Goals

Mission Statement

In congruence with Longwood's mission to develop students as citizen leaders, the Student Health and Wellness Center (SHWC) is committed to helping students become full participants [partners] in their own health by the learning of self care and wellness behaviors.  We accomplish this through the provision of health education, preventative services, and clinical care; thereby optimizing academic success and preparing students to become active members of society who make positive contributions to the common good.
