University of Pennsylvania
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 Pennsylvania is thrilled to continue its commitment to making Penn a healthier place. We took several steps forward in our innovative dining establishments by ensuring all of our dining locations offer a wellness option at every meal, denoted as ‘Dan’s Daily Dish.’ We also worked to label all food and beverage items with calories per serving at the point of presentation and online. In our efforts to make sure Penn is a healthier place for students AND faculty and staff, we redesigned the catering menu to better highlight healthy meal options. Hydration is an important part of staying healthy and well, so we confirmed that all dining, recreational, and educational facilities have free water available. Finally, thanks to a tremendous partnership with our Campus Recreation department, Penn now offers a number of free beginner fitness classes each month to introduce students to new physical activities.”
