Mississippi 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.
“In collaboration with the Partnership for a Healthier America, Mississippi State University’s (MSU) Health Promotion and Wellness, University Recreation, and Dining Services work in partnership to engage students, faculty, staff, and community members through initiatives and environmental supports to promote complete mental, physical, and social well-being.
"MSU on the Move Healthy Dawgs is an MSU employee program providing accountability, healthy tips, food samples, recipes, exercise, and nutritional information. Various nutrition programs have been offered from Health Promotion and Wellness. University Recreation provides a free WalkFit program for employees to increase physical fitness throughout the campus. Healthy food sampling has been made available to students, faculty, and staff throughout the year by Dining Services. While these are only a sample of the programming and environmental support, MSU is committed to the wellbeing of the MSU community.”
