Loyola Marymount 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.
“Loyola Marymount has been thrilled to be one of the first US Campuses to participate in PHA. Since our acceptance into the program we have made significant progress towards fulfilling our commitments.
"On campus, we have added outdoor fitness equipment and are in the process of developing and marking a new exercise route for all to enjoy. Our Campus HR department is in the process of reinvigorating and reestablishing it’s Health and Wellness Committee, and we expect robust participation to help enrich the lives of our Faculty and Staff both on and off campus.
"Our foodservice provider Sodexo has developed and deployed an all-natural, organic and healthy choices platform called ‘Natural’ in our main dining facility, The Lair. In addition they have been able to launch ‘Harmony’ a 100% vegan / vegetarian station and have now removed all candy from the main dining room. In addition to all these efforts, students will also find that over 60% of their beverage choices are non-soda options such as juice and waters. Combined, all of these changes have increased the health and vitality of our campus and all who work and learn here. We are proud to be an active participant in the PHA.”
