Arizona State University
2016 Progress Report
Committed to meet 23 guidelines—developed by PHA in collaboration with some of the nation’s leading nutrition, physical activity and campus wellness experts—around nutrition, physical activity, and programming on campus.
“Arizona State University (ASU) is dedicated to helping students and employees lead a healthy lifestyle. Our membership in the Partnership for a Healthier America Healthier Campus Initiative has linked a network of ASU partners in the Live Well at ASU Network, dedicated to creating a campus environment where the healthy choice is the easy choice. Several efforts to improve campus wellness opportunities include:
• Aramark continues to work with students and the Live Well Network to increase fruit and vegetable consumption, providing healthy options at every meal, and offering students to take a piece of fruit with them to eat later in the day.
• Campus recreation centers are shifting focus to engage students and staff across the dimensions of wellness, to promote a holistic experience and support student and staff efforts to destress, eat healthier, engage in physical activities and develop healthier sleep habits.
• Expansion of the number of lactation spaces at all of our locations. • Gold status as a Bicycle Friendly University from the League of American Bicyclists. • ASU’s Employee Wellness Program established a certificate program for Healthy University Departments.
We are proud to be a member of the Partnership for a Healthier America Healthier Campus Initiative, and look forward to continued opportunities to make the healthy choice the easy choice at ASU!”
