Mission Statement

The Lauderdale Center for Student Health & Counseling promotes students' optimal health, well-being and development through the provision of high quality, integrated and holistic health services. Staffed by caring professionals, Health & Counseling offers primary health care, psychological counseling, sexual health services, and health promotion services to SUNY Geneseo students, as well as consultation, prevention and training programs to the Geneseo community. We strive to advance the missions of the College and Division of Student and Campus Life through empowering students to be active partners in their health care, providing education and resources to foster healthy decision making and supporting students in the pursuit of their academic goals.

Health & Counseling Values

What This Means to You

When you visit Health & Counseling, you will receive excellent health care from professionals who understand the specific needs of college students. In one place, you can take care of physical health needs like treatment for an illness or infection, talk with a counselor about relationship or personal problems, discuss contraception options, get information about common (and not-so-common!) health concerns, and more. Because we take a holistic approach to health, our staff work together to make sure that we address ways in which your physical and emotional health might intersect. Our motto, "because it’s your health," reflects our understanding of just how important health is to student success; it also communicates our belief that ultimately, students must play a major role in learning about and practicing behaviors that will help them improve their personal health. We believe that the partnership we create will benefit you throughout your time at Geneseo and beyond.
