We Welcome Your Feedback
We strive to provide high-quality health care and well-being resources that recognize the values, experiences, and needs of our diverse student community. We believe that a confidential, mutually respectful partnership between you and our staff and providers is the foundation necessary to develop and maintain optimal health and well-being. Understanding your PDF Document: rights and responsibilities and engaging your feedback about services is central to this partnership.
Your feedback is important to us, so if you had a good experience or have helpful suggestions, we encourage you to share that directly with the staff or provider in the office you visited. Our providers are trained to listen, answer your questions, and work with you to resolve concerns. For questions or concerns that arise prior to working with a provider, or if you feel it is best to speak with someone other than your provider, please share using our online feedback form.
