Health & Wellness

Health Promotion Services (HPS) provides student health services that promote an optimal state of health, stimulate better health awareness, and foster a vibrant and safe campus community for student success.

Cura personalis — care of the whole person — is a Jesuit tradition that inspires our proactive and compassionate approach to the physical, mental, emotional, intellectual, social, environmental, and spiritual health of all USF students.
