Meeting Minutes – February 20, 2004

It was announced that our recommendation that all classroom, office and administrative buildings become smoke-free has been approved, although a definite date for this change in the current smoking policy has not yet been decided. Student residences will also become smoke-free over the next three years. Discussion at today’s meeting yielded the suggestion that outdoor “smoking areas” away from the entrances to buildings be designated for those who choose to smoke. We also will put together a list of resources and strategies to support individuals who might use this change in policy to motivate them to stop smoking. Other agenda items included planning for the Health Fair and Blood Drive. Finally, Mark Dorsey, Director of Safety and Security, was introduced to the committee; discussion ensued as to how the Health Advisory Committee and the Safety and Security Committee might collaborate in the future.
