University of New England
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.
“The University of New England is pleased to be part of the Partnership for a Healthier America. Participation in the program has provided us with a blueprint that provides guidance on evaluating current services and implementing new ones that will increase the accessibility of healthy nutritional and physical options for our students. The health and wellness of our students is one the University’s top priorities and with each guideline we achieve it brings a step closer to becoming a healthier campus. Our campus center offers a wide variety of free services to all of our students from group exercise classes to personalized fitness programs created by certified professionals as well as a variety of outdoor rec options. The facility is outfitted with an indoor pool and track, full fitness center and basketball court. We also take pride in outdoor recreation services which offers free rentals of camping equipment, kayaks, bicycles and ski equipment. Our food service provider, Sodexo, has been a great partner and we look forward to work closely with them this year to work on achieving all of the nutritional guidelines focused on increasing the offerings of healthy meals, fruits, vegetables and whole grains. We are honored to be part of the Partnership for a Healthier America and constantly strive to provide our students with the healthiest campus possible.”
