University of Houston
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.
“Since signing on to the Partnership for a Healthier America, Healthier Campus Initiative, the University of Houston has taken several steps in its quest to create a culture of health and wellness on campus. These include developing an annual RA physical activity and nutrition training, enhancing our ride-share and public transportation program, and implementing a bi-weekly Farmer’s Market for students and staff. As we begin Year Two of our commitment, we will be working on the development of one-, two- and three-mile walking paths, installing an outdoor fitness system, and later in the year, a bike share program! We will also be working with our new dining services vendor to address several food and nutrition guidelines as well as to increase the number of healthy vending options on campus.”
