Cal State Fullerton to become first smoke-free CSU campus
Lighting up anywhere on the grounds of Cal State Fullerton will be forbidden under a new policy that makes Fullerton the first completely smoke-free campus in the Cal State system.
The ban, approved earlier this year by the Academic Senate and signed Thursday by CSUF Interim President Willie J. Hagan, goes into effect Aug. 1, 2013.
“I expected to receive negative comments about the action of this new policy, but have been surprised” at the support from both students and faculty, Hagan said in a statement.
The policy, which prohibits smoking anywhere on university property -- including in vehicles and parking lots -- expands a 2003 ban on smoking in or near CSUF buildings.
