The Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) works with the private sector and First Lady Michelle Obama to make healthier choices easier. NC State is one of 38 colleges and universities that have signed on to its Healthier Campus Initiative, a three-year commitment to adopt guidelines around nutrition, physical activity, and programming. By implementing all 23 program guidelines two years ahead of schedule, NC State has become the first campus to successfully complete its commitment, encouraging a healthier lifestyle for the more than 40,000 students, faculty, and staff on campus each year.
