Health is central to the personal, academic, and professional success of students, and healthcare is not a one size fits all endeavor.
NYU’s student body is diverse in race, ethnicity, country of origin, language, faith, socioeconomic background, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, and even course of study, and so it is especially critical for the Student Health Center to take a student-centered and whole person approach to carefully meet the specific needs of each individual student. Respect and inclusion are foundational.
All of our staff work to enhance their cultural competency, and we regularly collaborate with the Center for Multicultural Education and Programs, Office of Global Spiritual Life, and the LGBTQ+ Student Center in order to better serve our student body. Additionally, diverse identities are represented among our clinicians and other staff at the Student Health Center.
The health and well-being of our students is our primary concern. If you wish to engage with a clinician who identifies in a particular way, let us know and we will facilitate this either at the Student Health Center or externally as needed. For Counseling and Wellness Services, please share any provider preference you may have at the time of your initial intake and for other services contact our Patient Advocate.
Advancing health and health equity among our students is a collaborative process; we welcome and appreciate your ideas, feedback and suggestions about this or any other health related matter. Feel free to be in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
