- What should your official policy recommendation look like?
Policy Implementation: Friday, February 10th, 1:00pm
Are you planning to go smoke/tobacco-free in the Fall? Find out what you can do now to prepare your campus for the change. Hear stories of how other campuses have tackled policy implementation.
Policy Maintenance and Enforcement: Friday, March 17th, 1:00pm
Wonder what’s going to happen with your smoke/tobacco-free policy one, two or five years down the road? Join in to learn:
- Punitive and non-punitive enforcement strategies
