Wellness Center

The goal of the Wellness Center (Counseling and Health Services) is to keep you healthy so you can accomplish your educational objectives and enjoy campus life.

All traditional and non-traditional students currently enrolled at Stritch are eligible to use the Wellness Center.

The mission of the Wellness Center, which includes Counseling and Health Services, is to promote health and wellness, to provide care and treatment to our students in keeping with the Franciscan values dedicated to enhancing learning and retention. All clients will be served in a confidential and nonjudgmental environment with a caring and respectful attitude. 

Health and wellness services are provided by an advanced nurse practitioner and registered nurse with the assistance of support staff. A part-time psychiatric nurse practitioner who is a member with the Medical College of Wisconsin is also available through referral from Counseling Services. The medical director for Health Services is Dr. Lisa Speidel. 


All medical records and client visits are confidential. No one may be allowed access to patient records without written permission of the individual. Confidentiality is broken only in cases where a client is likely to harm himself/herself, someone else, or jeopardize the welfare of the University.
