The mission of Campus Health is to lead the Tulane Community in advancing student health and well-being.
To support students’ academic success through attending to physical and mental health, Tulane Campus Health offers a wide variety of services and initiatives through its three units:
The Health Center for Student Care is committed to providing comprehensive quality health services and support in a compassionate manner. A holistic approach to the patient as a student in an academic community setting facilitates the best care to every individual through an integrated clinical practice.
CAPS for Counseling Services is committed to providing developmentally appropriate mental health services both in the office setting and as outreach, along with consultative support throughout Tulane University.
The Well for Health Promotion is committed to providing the infrastructure for constant engagement in the health promotion process. Health Promotion initiatives enable people to increase control over, and to improve, their health by engaging a wide range of social and environmental interventions that impact both the community and the individual.
