As noted in a September 5, 2013, Daily Sundial story about campus smoking bans the number of universities and colleges adopting smoke-free or tobacco-free policies is rapidly growing. According to a U.S. Department of Education report, as of July 2013, some 1,159 universities and colleges had adopted tobacco-free or smoke-free policies. At CSUN, smoking is prohibited in all university buildings, within 25 feet of building entrances and exits, and in outdoor dining areas posted as smoke-free.
Click here to participate in the survey and share your thoughts on whether and how such a policy should be implemented at CSUN, and to what extent. (NOW CLOSED TO COMMENTS)
The input of the campus community will be essential to this process. A university-wide committee will be appointed and charged with studying these questions, receiving and reviewing all input, and presenting a recommendation for implementation.
Thank you for helping to make CSUN shine brighter.
