BRIEF: UCM leaders consider smoking policy

WARRENSBURG, Nov 16, 2012 (The Daily Star-Journal - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- The University of Central Missouri Board of Governors may accept, or reject, a revision to the university's tobacco policy at 8:30 a.m. Friday in Elliott Union.

The Tobacco Policy Committee submitted recommendations to the board in September that make the campus tobacco-free beginning January 2014.

"The best recommendation is the one we have," the director of Violence and Substance Abuse Prevention, Amy Kiger, said Thursday.

If the board approves the policy revision, then communication, education and training will begin immediately.

There would be no designated smoking areas under the new policy and use of all tobacco and smoking products would be prohibited in all university-owned, leased or controlled buildings, grounds and residences.
