University of Oregon
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 Oregon (UO) is excited to announce that it has completed all of its outstanding Healthier Campus Initiatives! The completion of all the PHA initiatives was due to ongoing collaborative efforts among the UO Housing, Dining and Catering Department, the Physical Education and Recreation Department, the Duck Nest Wellness Center, the UO Bike Program, the IntroDUCKtion Orientation Program, the University Counseling Center, Human Resources, the Outdoor Program, the Eugene community, and numerous individuals at UO and in the community. The effort was coordinated by the University Health Center. These activities showcased UO’s healthy offerings, options, and opportunities throughout campus for students, faculty, and staff, ranging from healthy, locally sourced dining options, a comprehensive wellness center with peer-driven programming, a bike share program on campus and in the community, a robust outdoor program, a multitude of offerings through the UO PE and Recreation Department, and much much more. UO also is proud of the accessibility, diversity, and inclusivity of these options. The University Health Center Executive Director Debra Beck, RN, MBA, participated in the 2019 PHA Annual Meeting and accepted the Healthier Campus recognition.”
