The Healthy Campus Initiative at UC Irvine: Take the Stairs (2018 - Present)
As part of a University of California-wide Healthy Campus Initiative, the Take the Stairs project will conduct an environmental audit of barriers and facilitators to choosing the stairs over the elevators at the UC Irvine Campus. This project is taking place in the context of an effort to place signage in campus buildings to encourage pedestrians to take the stairs.

Can an environmental approach stimulate more physical activity in the form of more frequent use of the stairs in place of elevators?
