University of Arizona
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 University of Arizona is proud to participate in the Partnership for a Healthier America’s Healthier Campus Initiative. In our second year, we have been able to submit and have third party verification completed for the remaining 35% of the required criteria surrounding nutrition, wellness and physical activity. We are excited to announce the University of Arizona has completed 100% of the required criteria in two years, one full year ahead of the three-year commitment period. The University has continued to strengthen its wellness efforts by ensuring five types of fruit, five types of vegetables & two whole grains are offered at lunch and dinner, providing an outdoor walking/running track on campus and implementing an integrated comprehensive wellness program annually through our Healthy Campus Week Summit & Expo. We continue our enthusiasm to excel in the areas of wellness focusing on diet, exercise & mind to become the Healthiest Campus in America!”
