Topic 3 Update: Becoming a Smoke-Free Campus

February 7, 2014

Photo of CSUN campusLast November, we reported on the feedback results of Topic 3 on whether CSUN should be a smoke-free campus. This feedback included a summary report of the responses and the appointment of the Task Force on Becoming a Smoke-Free Campus, which was charged with considering this important issue (see also the President’s message about the results of the survey and the appointment of the Task Force.)

As a further update on this issue, the Task Force reported that it has begun its work and will meet at least twice a month from February to April 2014 and provide its recommendations to the President's Cabinet in early May. An email address has been created for Task Force, and members of the university community are invited to share their input with the members at .

Input and feedback from the university community, which includes smokers and non-smokers, remains critical—the Task Force is considering the survey results, as well as other forms of input such as emails sent to the above e-mail address from students, faculty, and staff, as it works on developing recommendations, so the continued interest and feedback of the campus community are welcome.
