NC State University will join the Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) in a commitment to improve campus health by formalizing guidelines around food, nutrition, physical activity and programming.
Through the PHA’s new Healthier Campus Initiative, NC State units agree to implement or strengthen 23 wellness-related guidelines over the next three years. They include:
- Offering more fruits, vegetables and whole grains while reducing the amount of fried food offered in campus dining halls and eateries.
- Continuing implementation of a bicycle and pedestrian accommodation policy, and/or participating in a national bicycle or pedestrian recognition program.
- Providing all students 16-hour-per-day access to at least one fitness/recreation center during the academic year without an additional user fee beyond student fees.
