University of Oregon
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.
“This past year we completed two of our 23 metrics leaving ten to be completed. The majority of metrics remaining are related to dining. This past year we opened up a new wellness center called the Duck Nest. It is located in our new student union and the programming focuses on stress reduction, nutrition and physical activity. Students may drop in for a cup of tea or to make an aroma therapy bag in addition to participating in specific programs. Our pet therapy program is one of the highest attended events. We look forward to sharing more about how the Duck Nest contributes to the health of our students. We continue to work with our Recreation Center colleagues on the annual Run with the Duck. We will be working with colleagues this coming year on completion of our remaining metrics.”
