ECU campuses to become smoke-free

Friday, 04 December 2009


The University Council has agreed, in-principle, for all ECU campuses to become smoke-free, at a date which is yet to be settled.

It is obvious that there will be benefits to non-smokers as a result of this policy, and indeed to smokers who quit.

The University will explore the help and support that should be provided for smokers, and any required changes to our by-laws, before we settle a date for implementation.

We will consult experts, and smokers, extensively during 2010.

I welcome comments from anyone regarding this proposed improvement to ECU’s learning and working environment.
