Johnson C. Smith University
2018 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.
“In our first year as a part of the PHA’s Healthier Campus Initiative, JCSU hosted our first Healthier Campus Week. We hosted several events including field day, yoga, workout Wednesday, mental health seminar, and flu shot clinic. We have also established a wellness committee bringing together various stakeholders on campus, including faculty, staff, and students to develop a deliverable wellness program. Our primary recreation center, the HealthPlex, offers a space free and open to all students for physical activity and for students to receive fitness assessments. Focusing on safety, JCSU also has crosswalk signs posted throughout campus for pedestrians.”
