2017 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.
“American University (AU) is excited to complete our Healthier Campus Initiative with the Partnership for a Healthier America. Over the past three years, our campus has worked diligently to meet our Healthier Campus objectives and to make a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of the AU community. Throughout this initiative, we have improved the access to healthy food options, physical activity, and wellness programs. Among our objectives met within the past year include opening a campus Food Pantry to ensure that all AU students have access to healthy food. We also created an outdoor Fitness Trail, contributing to a built environment that promotes physical activity.
"As we move beyond our formal commitments with the PHA’s Healthier Campus Initiative, we are dedicated to continuing the work of making our campus a place where students will thrive and continue to have access to the resources needed to make healthy choices.”
