It is the mission of the Student Health Services of the City University of New York to make quality health care and health education available to all of its students in order to contribute to their academic success and personal growth.
The provision of these medical and psychological services will be sensitive to the needs of our non-traditional student body and will be tailored to the cultural diversity of the CUNY population.
With guidance from the Health Services Advisory Council, all programs are designed to help meet or exceed The Minimal Standards adopted by the CUNY Board of Trustees in May 2000. In a commitment to retain students who will successfully graduate from The City University, health promotion and disease prevention are our primary goals.
Opiate and Heroin Initiative
CUNY is collaborating with state and city agencies on the Governor’s Opiate and Heroin initiative. Information on combating heroin use and abuse — including information on warning signs, prevention, and treatment – can be found at the Combat Heroin website.
