We at Cornell Health are committed to promoting health and fostering healing. We are here for individuals who seek our care, and we strive to bolster Cornell’s caring community as stewards of health for the university.
In this moment, our staff members are particularly attuned to the way the terrorism in Charlottesville has heightened the lack of security felt by many students, community members, colleagues, and families. Together, we will work to carry and confront those burdens.
Plainly stated, our mission is to be here for all students who need us. We recognize and embrace the justice imperatives inherent in the work we do, and we remain steadfast in our commitment to openness, inclusion, respect, and advocacy.
