Education – STRATEGY 6

Encourage post-secondary institutions to provide access to physical activity opportunities, including physical activity courses, robust club and intramural programs, and adequate physical activity and recreation facilities.


  • Advocate for state and federal funding to ensure that post-secondary institutions have resources (e.g., facilities, equipment, staff) to provide quality physical activity programming.
  • Develop and implement local policies and joint use agreements that allow students in post-secondary institutions to have access to physical activity facilities, such as school gyms and community recreation centers.
  • Encourage USDE/CHEA accrediting agencies to require all institutions receiving Federal (Title IV) funding to hold a class focusing on the impact of physical inactivity, resources and opportunities for physical activity, and positive health behaviors such as an institutional graduation requirement.
