Health & Wellness

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

Cura personalis — care of the whole person — is a Jesuit tradition that inspires our proactive and compassionate approach. We believe that your physical, mental, emotional, intellectual, social, environmental, and spiritual health are integral to your success as a USF student.
