ECU campuses to become smoke-freeFriday, 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.
