The mission of the DSU Health & Counseling Center is to promote a climate where students/faculty/staff can become more engaged in healthy lifestyle behaviors through health and couseling resources, information and services.
This program encourages the campus community to strengthen their health and well-being through educational opportunities, and self-improvement with a staff of nurse practitioners and therapists available for appointments as needed.
