Loyola Marymount 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 Healthier Campus Initiative aligns with our University Mission which encapsulates ‘The Education of the Whole Person’ Students are at a pivotal time in College, and as educators/leaders, we can increase their awareness of making healthier lifestyle choices while in college. We all have a role to play and can make a difference in providing for healthier environments that foster healthy habits for maturing young adults. PHA is a conduit to that end which we are proud to participate. Loyola Marymount University has implemented a student nutritional program where the students can arrange to meet with a nutritionist to learn proper eating and wellness habits in association with a nutrition kiosk in our main dining hall. This year we have incorporated cooking classes for the health conscious individuals on campus. Our focus at Loyola Marymount University with the Partnership for a Healthier America Campus Initiative is to encourage our campus family to make a lifestyle change and we have promoted this mission through our new cooking classes, physical activity competitions and more healthy food options and health awareness.”
