San Diego State University Senate (SDSU) announced last week about introduction of smoking ban on campus which comes into action from January 1, the next year. Thus smoking will be prohibited on all 12 designated smoking areas on campus. The new smoking policy. will affect SDSU and its auxiliary organizations.

William Eadie, the University Senate Chair, said that there are no exceptions and in  the terms of agreement is written that the new policy is socially approved. Soon there will be introduced fines for cases when the policy is violated and the decision is going to be taken by the California State University Employees Union (CUSEU).

Generally, set of terms of the smoking policy also were discussed by CUSEU. The Senate voted last April to ban smoking on campus. Then the vote was approved by President Elliot Hirshman.

He said last week that he wanted to delay approving the smoking ban and first discuss it in order to determine the points of possible conflict.  And the last week there was announced about smoking ban on campus. Thus faculty,  students, visitors and staff will be prohibited from using the 12 designated smoking zones on campus.

Tom Harpole, the Office of Employee Relations and Compliance Director, worked over examining the senate’s policy.

It is just an update for the existing smoking policy, therefore senators did not tell their opinion for or against new changes in the policy.  SDSU Student Health Services provide a student smoking cessation help to quit the habit.
