Our Mission and Story
To support the health and well-being of every Lumberjack, the Health and Wellness Hub offers comprehensive services that treat the whole person — mind, body and spirit.
Achieving this mission requires alignment among six entities that have historically worked separately in different locations across campus: Health Services, Counseling Services, Student Outreach and Support, the Food Pantry, dietary assistance, and access to services at the Family Crisis Center of East Texas. These siloed offerings duplicated resources, created long lines for students and delayed access to care.
With immense institutional support to serve our students better, the Health and Wellness Hub was launched based on the latest best practices for improving students' well-being on campuses across the country. The hub offers continuity of care with a more personal approach, so students don't fall through the cracks.
Lumberjacks, even if you don't quite know what you need, you are always welcome at the hub. Stop by, and we'll figure it out together.
