A Summit on Tobacco-Free Campuses
Wednesday, May 2, 2018

Come join us for a discussion about a growing trend among colleges and universities locally and around the nation! Currently, over 2,100 colleges and universities in the U.S. have 100% smoke-free campus policies.

Over the last decade, eight (8) colleges and universities in Philadelphia have strengthened their smoke-free policies to protect the health of their campus communities and help re-set the norms around smoking! Will you be next?
The goal of this summit is to bring together leaders from universities and colleges to discuss, promote, encourage and help facilitate smoke-free campus policies in Philadelphia. The summit will provide a forum for participants to:

 Hear from institutions in Philadelphia who have adopted smoke-free or tobacco-free policies;
