University of North Florida
2018 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 North Florida established the Healthy Osprey Initiative as a campus-wide movement to transform the health and wellness of students, faculty, and staff alike. The initiative’s goal is to build a healthy community that supports healthy lifestyle behaviors through individual, interpersonal and institutional transformation. Our commitment to the Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) has steered Healthy Osprey to new heights in health and wellness, especially in physical activity and nutrition. UNF completed this three year partnership by meeting 23 guidelines, all with an eye toward shaping good habits for our future leaders and parents. Over the last three years, UNF has been able to provide healthier food and beverage options in dining venues, create more opportunities for physical activity and offer innovative wellness programming on campus. As a university, we have been able to educate and motivate the UNF community toward the path of healthy behaviors. With the support and a framework from PHA, we have reached milestones toward the ultimate goal of a holistically healthy university that encompasses Body, Mind and Spirit.”
