Caring for Students' Well-being

The Jay Johnson Wellness Center on the Winona Campus promotes the development of the whole person and encourages a lifestyle that integrates emotional, intellectual, physical, social, spiritual, and vocational well-being.

Student health and counseling services are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. when classes are in session. Services are provided free of charge for undergraduate students on the Winona Campus. 

Our registered nurse and nurse practitioner provide full-time, compassionate care to help students meet their health and wellness needs. Services include treatment of minor illness and injury, support for students with chronic conditions, and health education.  

Counseling is available to address a wide variety of issues and to assist students to make the most of their college experience. Many students report that counseling helps them to gain more satisfying personal lives and successful academic careers.
