Town Hall Meetings Continue Discussion About Tobacco-free UniversityPosted Mar. 4, 2013
A series of town hall meetings are scheduled this spring at the Kent and Regional campuses, to gather additional input from the university community on becoming a tobacco-free institution.
Last fall, a universitywide committee was convened at the request of President Lester A. Lefton to study a proposal that would make all Kent State University campuses tobacco-free. That was in response to the recommendation from the Ohio Board of Regents that all public college and university campuses in Ohio become tobacco-free. The committee conducted a survey last semester.
This week, town hall sessions will be conducted March 4, 5, 6 and 7, at Kent State University at Trumbull, Kent State University Regional Academic Center in Twinsburg, Kent State University at East Liverpool and Kent State University at Geauga respectively. Each session will last one hour, and faculty, staff and students are invited to attend.
You can view the schedule to find the meeting time and location at your campus. Questions should be directed to Rachael Decker, wellness coordinator, at 330-672-8368 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
