University of Richmond
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 Richmond is honored to have completed our first year of PHA commitment with many campus partner relationships including Campus Dining Services, Health Promotion, University Recreation and the Office of Sustainability. In partnership with our Dining Services team, we were able to offer a comparable plant-based food option at every platform serving meat, and offer tray-less dining in at least seventy-five percent (75%) of dining venues. We are also happy to state that we can ensure the percentage of healthier beverage purchases (in dollars) is a minimum of sixty percent (60%) of total beverage purchases (in dollars) for catering. We have highly trained professional staff within our realm of services including a Registered Dietitian, and multiple Personal Trainers that bring a wealth of knowledge to our campus community. We have a robust and diverse group fitness schedules, a fitness floor, and an outdoor recreation program that provides fundamentals skills for lifelong well-being. We truly value a culture of well-being. So, we offer many services to both our students and employees including an employee wellness incentive program where employees can earn rewards for well-being program participation designated in partnership with our health insurer. We are looking forward to our next two years of commitment with PHA and beyond bringing enhanced services to campus to ensure a healthier community!”
