The Smoke-Free Campus Steering Committee is seeking feedback from students, faculty, and staff on the draft Smoke-Free Campus Policy, which reflects the University’s commitment to foster a culture of well-being for visitors and those who work, live, or study on campus.
A working group reviewed information gathered through the campus consultation activities held in 2020, as well as the policies of other Ontario universities who have gone smoke-free over the past several years, to develop the document, says committee chair Marcela Ciampa, director of organizational development and training.
To prepare for the implementation of the policy, the committee will launch an awareness raising, education, and supports campaign in the coming weeks. Frequently Asked Questions and a map of the campus boundaries will be posted on the Smoke-Free Campus website.
The committee invites students, staff, and faculty to review the draft Smoke-Free Campus Policy and provide feedback by June 28, using the anonymous online feedback form.
