University of Richmond
2019 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 second year of our PHA commitment with many campus partner relationships, including Campus Dining Services, Health Promotion, University Recreation and the Office of Sustainability. Our campus has pulled together these key partners to share and work towards a common goal through our PHA commitment. To highlight a few of our 2019 accomplishments, we offer a minimum five (5) types of fruits, five (5) types of vegetables and two (2) 100% whole grain products at both lunch and dinner at most dining facilities. We also offer tray-less dining in at least 75% of our dining venues. We also strive to increase physical activity of our campus community and have secured at least 75% of the primary campus recreation center floor space for areas for physical activity. We continue to work with medical insurance partners and provide comprehensive on-site screening, programming and educational opportunities to our employees. We are looking forward to our upcoming year of commitment with PHA and beyond bringing enhanced services to campus to ensure a healthier community!
