Clayton State University
2016 Progress Report
Committed to meet 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.
“Clayton State University is one of the founding universities to commit to the Partnership for a Healthier America and the effort to help curb obesity in Higher Education. These commitments moved our post-secondary education institution toward delivering healthier options and promoting more opportunities for physical activity to help improve the health of individuals on campus. The chosen guidelines actively encourage healthy lifestyles through excellence in teaching, research and service with an extraordinary collaboration between many university departments in academic affairs, and student life. This collaborative commitments at Clayton State University mean that we, together, seek to provide a friendly, humanistic, technologically enriched healthy environment that fosters the emotional, physical, intellectual, and social development of all students, staff and faculty around healthy living and learning. The PHA initiative enhances our campus scholarship and creativity around healthier community choices and their availability and accessibility. Together, we seek to provide a rich environment where critical thinking and healthy living are the cornerstones of our everyday activities in support of a customized culture for healthy habits.”
