University of California, Los Angeles
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.
“It has been an exciting and productive year at UCLA collaboratively working across the campus with our student, faculty and staff leadership to complete our PHA commitment. We have expanded our environmental ‘activation’ of the stairwell nudges people to take the stairs over the elevator through several messaging and design improvements. We successfully launched our bike share program. We continue to implement cooking classes and are identifying a permanent site on campus for student, staff and faculty cooking classes. We continue to address the issues of student food insecurity with the expansion of our Food Closet, our undergraduate dining food voucher donation program (swipes for hunger) and the gleaning of 1,000 pounds of produce monthly from local farmer’s markets and distributing it to our undergraduate and graduate students. Additionally, we plan to attend the wonderful 2018 PHA annual meeting in DC. Finally we published an article about UCLA HCI as a case study utilizing the collective impact strategy to meet our goals called Collective Impact for Health and Wellbeing.”
