This mission is pursued and supports the University's purpose by using current knowledge of health and human development to guide responsive, high quality clinical, prevention, and consultation services.
In 1910, Princeton established itself as the first college or university in the United States to identify the subspecialty of college mental health and create a distinct mental health service. In 1925, with the opening of the Isabella McCosh Infirmary, now called the McCosh Health Center, Princeton became the first institution of higher education to situate its overnight Infirmary alongside all other medical and health-related services for students. This integrated design has been a hallmark of Princeton's student health program?a brick and mortar embodiment of holistic, integrative care. The stage was thus set long ago for Princeton's health service to champion care for the "whole person." At present, the McCosh Health Center, along with its satellite health program (Athletic Medicine) housed in Caldwell Field House and Dillon Gymnasium, comprise the University Health Services (UHS).
