When a student is ill, Student Health Services supports meaningful conversation between the faculty and student. These conversations provide an excellent communication skill-building opportunity for students and help identify how they can fulfill their academic responsibilities while working around an illness. We encourage appropriate use of health care resources and do not routinely provide excuses for students who miss class due to illness.   

Student Health Services is located in the lower level of Carkoski Commons. For more information about the services we provide, please call 507-389-6276 or visit our Student Health Services website.
