Does your university as a body have a ‘smoke-free’ policy?

Due to the health considerations of students and faculty, we actively promote a tobacco-free campus. Our public policy declares the campus to be tobacco-free, establishes a tobacco control working group, and specifies the ‘Student Tobacco Hazard Management Guidelines’ in its regulations. Furthermore, we consistently advocate tobacco control through health education, tobacco control activities, and tobacco cessation courses. Recently, we further incorporated community resources and designed tobacco-free restaurants in collaboration with the community, thus allowing all students and faculty members to keep away from tobacco hazards, and sharing our pride in the anti-tobacco movement by promoting it to the community.
◎ Our Campus’s ‘Tobacco-Free’ Policy
1. Since 2009, smoking has been banned completely as a tobacco-free campus, in response to the government’s Comprehensive Tobacco Ban Policy, in order to protect the health of all faculty, staff, and students on campus; and to create a tobacco-free, healthy, and refreshing campus environment.
2. In 2015, the ‘Student Tobacco Hazard Management Guidelines’ was passed in the National Changhua University of Education, which founded the campus’s Tobacco Control Working Group, and is integrated with tobacco cessation education.
◎ Features
1. Tobacco ban campaign vehicles touring the campus: Through tobacco ban campaign vehicles that tour the campus every day, a full-campus tobacco ban was effectively promoted.
2. Promoting tobacco-free restaurants in co-operation with the community: 20 eating and drinking establishments around the campus have supported the tobacco ban and anti-tobacco policies, and passed the university’s tobacco-free restaurant certification. This has provided more smoke-free locations for good food, and extended the tobacco-free environment beyond the campus.
