HCS supports the mission and goals of Student Services at Carleton University. Our staff believes that a caring and supportive environment enhances the educational process and influences student success and retention by modifying or removing health related barriers to learning. Healthy students are better able to concentrate on their studies and to reach their fullest potential.

abouthcs_2HCS is guided by a philosophy which acknowledges the connection between intellectual development, personal growth, and physical and emotional health.

As an integral resource to the university community, HCS seeks to promote well-being and to empower students, staff and faculty to be responsible, self-directed and informed consumers of healthcare services.
