MBA Project- Tobacco Free Campus 

Sinead, Kirstin, Delaney, Audrey 

Project in class to make a tobacco free campus 

Group has talked to Kristin Petty and President- wants faculty staff and students on board. $25000 grant from Kansas Health Foundation. Friends University is going tobacco free July 1. President wants everyone on board- to prevent second hand smoke. Eliminating paying people to pick up cigarette butts. On the off-site facilities as well. All types of tobacco eliminated- dips and cigarettes. As soon as possible to implement this- possibly as soon as July 1: Implement before baseball gets started. Questions opposed about implementation and determining what is “getting people on board”, e-cigs, designated smoking areas, the effects this policy will have on recruitment and retention, consequences, fines, etc. MBA group considered surveying student 

body. Will meet with staff and Tracy Frederick and have received support from athletics, as they want to go tobacco free. To get the grant it could be that all tobacco has to be banned.
