Through our three areas - the University Health Center, the Counseling Center, and the Office of Health Promotion - Campus Community Health at UCM works to help keep you healthy and safe through health promotion, preventive health and wellness programs, counseling services, and coalition building with both on-campus and off-campus partners.
We are committed to addressing and reducing the impact of physical, mental, and emotional health issues on students, through the delivery of quality primary care services and support, in a manner consistent with your level of need.
University Health Center
The University Health Center is your first stop when you're sick or injured, need well woman care, or need clinical prevention services such as immunizations or medications. It's staffed by physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacy and lab technicians, and friendly office personnel.
The Counseling Center helps with concerns affecting your life and functioning, and is a safe place for you to begin addressing your concerns. It's staffed by clinicians who are experienced in responding to a variety of personal and social issues.
Office of Health Promotion
The Office of Health Promotion at UCM helps students learn, grow, and thrive through education about, and engagement in, health-promoting and risk-reducing behaviors. Using data-informed practices, we work to put the power of prevention in the hands of our students.
Our office provides fun and interactive educational presentations to help UCM students make informed health-related decisions. To request a presentation, click below.
Composed of leaders from across campus, the Coalition meets 6-8 times per year.Purpose
The 1989 amendments to the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act (DFSCA), as articulated in the Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) Part 86 (the Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Regulations) require that all institutes of higher education closely examine their prevention program on a biennial basis.
The current biennial review documents UCM’s prevention efforts related to alcohol and other drug use, and is available upon request from Amy Kiger, Director of Campus Community Health; email email@example.com or call 660-543-4772.
UCM's Campus Alcohol Board (CAB) is a multi-disciplinary subcommittee of the UCM Partners in Prevention Coalition, appointed by the president, comprised of various members of the university community, and coordinated by Campus Community Health. The CAB meets as required or called upon to advise the president and university community on issues related to alcohol education programs, policy implementation and enforcement, community relations, and other topics as may arise related to the university’s alcohol policy and programs.
To obtain more information or clarification regarding the development of procedures governing the sale, service, possession or consumption of alcohol in and on university facilities and grounds, please contact Amy Kiger, Director of Campus Community Health, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Mission: In collaboration with campus and community partners, we reduce the impact of physical, mental, and behavioral health issues on student success, through the delivery of quality primary care services and the implementation of evidence-informed health promotion strategies.
