Smoke Free Initiative


The Smoke Free Campus Steering Committee will:

  1. Seek input from students, staff and faculty through both dialogue and online feedback channels.
  2. Identify best practices at other peer institutions and organizations that have become smoke free.
  3. Identify implementation recommendations including the pros and cons
  4. Communicate with the campus members regarding this issue.
