SU System celebrates one-year anniversary of Tobacco-free campuses - 1/21/2013 -

The Southern University System and Communities of Color Network (CoC) is commemorating one year of a healthier, tobacco-free campus on which to live, work and learn.

On January 2, 2012, the SUS Board of Supervisors approved the 100 percent tobacco-free campus policy. This unprecedented measure prohibits smoking or the use of tobacco products in any building, administrative facility, dormitory, or on-campus grounds, including athletic fields and parking areas.

The successful implementation was initiated and is led by Communities of Color Network, an affiliated program of The Louisiana Public Health Institute and The Louisiana Campaign for Tobacco-free Living. CoC Network serves as the infrastructure for educating constituents, building capacity, coordinating, organizing and executing tobacco prevention and control programs and activities targeting African Americans statewide.
