United Tribes Technical College
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.
“United Tribes Technical College (UTTC) is proud to be a part of the Partnership for a Healthier American’s Healthier Campus Initiative. This initiative has provided the guidance to help UTTC successfully create an environment where health and wellness are key components of the college experience. American Indian culture has been integrated in the majority of the guidelines to tailor to this 1994 Tribal College University and its students who represent over 37 Tribal nations. With the guidance from PHA, UTTC has been able to strengthen our own food sovereignty initiatives which includes utilizing students and staff to grow our own food that feeds the whole campus through dining services. To successfully complete these guidelines, UTTC has a strong Healthy Community Committee which encompasses 15 different departments to ensure a holistic wellness program for all students and staff. UTTC is eager to complete the guidelines by May 2020, but more excited for how this partnership will continue to create a culture of wellness on campus for years to come.”
