Tobacco Free advisory group to hold public forum Jan. 22

cigarrette-150The WSU Pullman Tobacco Free Advisory Task Force (TFATF) will hold a public forum beginning at 5:30 p.m. Jan. 22 in CUE 203 to share and discuss last year’s tobacco-free campus referendum, additional subsequent survey results, and new draft policies and procedures related to tobacco use on campus.

The TFATF, which is composed of students, faculty, and staff from the Pullman campus, was formed following the passage last March of ASWSU Referendum 43-01, an advisory measure calling for a tobacco-free campus, which passed by 59.5 percent of the 1,781 votes cast.

Since the passage of the referendum, the task force has been reviewing additional survey data and working to develop policies and procedures to be used in implementing the new smoking policy, which must also be approved by the WSU Board of Regents.

The Jan. 22 public forum is open to all students, faculty staff and other interested parties.
