Habif Mission Statement and Related Policies

Our mission is to foster a compassionate and inclusive environment that supports each Washington University in St. Louis student’s physical, mental and emotional well-being. We commit to providing medical, mental health and health promotion services that recognize and celebrate the diversity of our campus community. We recognize that racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia and all other forms of discrimination and bigotry are public health crises that deeply and personally impact our campus community, our students and our employees. In conversation with those we serve, we commit to examining the places in which our practices perpetuate these inequalities, and working honestly and transparently to correct them.

Non-Discrimination Policy

Providers at Habif Health and Wellness Center oppose all discrimination in any form and work to foster an inclusive environment in which to deliver needed health care. We appreciate the diversity of human beings and do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, age, ethnic or national origin, political beliefs, nature of illness, disability, socioeconomic status, physical stature, body size, gender identity/expression, marital status, or sexual orientation.

Equal Visitation policy

A designated family/support person may be present to support the patient during their visit. A support person may include but not be limited to a spouse, adult child, parent, close relative, friend, domestic partner, and both different- and same-sex significant others. A support person is welcome to be present depending on the patient’s preference and their need for medical care/treatments, rest, privacy, and safety.
