In 2015, the University of Arizona became one of 38 universities to participate in the Partnership for a Healthier America’s (PHA) Healthier Campus Initiative. With this participation, the university agrees to meet 23 criteria in the way of healthier food options, physical activity and wellbeing over the course of a three-year period.
