George Mason University
2017 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 Partnership for a Healthier America’s Healthier Campus Initiative was an exciting opportunity to commit and execute goals in a collaborative and supportive environment. Mason was delighted to take the journey with all of our Healthy Campus colleagues. Within Mason, we are excited to have completed our 23 goals including our expanded healthier dining options for students, faculty, and staff such as wellness meals and locally sourced products (including some from our own hydroponic greenhouse), as well as our bike lanes, public transportation support, walking trails (including our newest – the Red Dogwood Trail), and well-being and fitness opportunities. The PHA experience provided a terrific framework to enhance and expand our healthy living programs; further it strengthened the collaboration within our university community, building relationships that will continue to support well-being at Mason.”
