The George Washington University
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.
“The George Washington University (GW) has successfully implemented twenty-three PHA Healthier Campus Initiative commitments to promote healthy living on campus and throughout our community. In 2017 we achieved 12 of our goals, the most we had ever completed in one year. Since 2014, GW has made significant improvements to our campus environment to make the healthy choice the easy choice. We recognize that college is a time when students develop lifelong habits which could have long-term health effects. Through the completion of our commitments, we have taken important steps forward in our goal to make our campus healthier. We are proud of the work done by all those involved to help drive healthier changes at GW and complete our commitments to PHA and our community.”
