A task force to examine West Virginia University’s existing campus smoking policy has been formed, President James P. Clements announced Wednesday (Dec. 2).
“Members of the Student Government Association, the Faculty Senate and the Staff Council have all expressed an interest in examining WVU’s current smoking policy and discussing recommended changes,” Clements said. “I invited the chairs of each constituency group to appoint three members to a task force to study the issue, and have asked Associate Provost C.B. Wilson to chair it.”
The current policy, established in 1990, bans smoking in University buildings, although exceptions can be made for residence halls.
In addition to nine constituency representatives, Randy Hudak, assistant vice president for Facilities and Services, will assist the group as questions arise about the campus footprint or other building-related issues.
The 11-member task force is encouraged to seek input, advice and guidance from other campus resources as needed. Membership includes:
