Student Government asks faculty, staff to weigh in on proposed smoking ban

More than 5,000 University of Toledo students responded to a survey asking whether smoking should be banned on Main Campus. Slightly more than 60 percent voted for a Main Campus smoking ban.

As a result, Student Government leaders are asking faculty and staff to weigh in with their views. To vote, click here.

Votes will be accepted through Friday, Dec. 20.

Student Government President Emily Kramp and Student Government Vice President Lauren Jencen have noted that more institutions across the nation are moving toward making campuses smoke-free and point out that Health Science Campus has been smoke-free for several years.

According to Kramp and Jencen, before presenting a suggestion of policy change to the University Council and UT Board of Trustees, it is imperative to obtain the opinions of faculty and staff so that all impacted by the ban have a voice in the decision.

    You can not make someone injest or not injest the things that you feel are healthy, even on a health science campus. Allow adults to make decisions for themselves and if the enjoy smoking, why punish them? If their best interest is what is truly what you have in mind, then offer an incentive for them to stop. Even then many will not. I feel it is discriminatory and it is likely that there are many things that non-smokers do that are worse. It just seems that there is a ban wagon about stopping smoking and everyone seems to be following. Lets be leaders and not just follow “institutions across the nation”!
