University of Colorado Boulder
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.
“The University of Colorado at Boulder is pleased to announce the completion of over half of our PHA initiatives during the 2018 year. The completion of these initiatives could not have been achieved without the ongoing collaborative efforts of the PHA team on campus. Working together, the PHA team has managed to extend physical activity to all students with varying physical abilities, and at the same time fuel their bodies with much needed healthy and sustainable foods. Students have access to a large recreation center, multiple bike paths, and a number of fitness classes and trainers that are able to meet the various fitness needs of students. In addition to fitness and recreation, all students have access to a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist through Dining Services in order to help guide them with any nutritional needs. At CU Boulder, we take great pride in our dining facilities and our ability to produce and serve healthy, great tasting, and sustainably sourced food. Much of which is plant based and local. In addition to the nourishing foods found throughout campus, students can show their creativity and learn cooking skills at our Chef led cooking classes, which are available monthly within our state of the art dining facility. We look forward to continuing our path towards health and wellness over the next year while continuing to implement PHA initiatives.”
