Goucher College Smoke-Free Initiative
Throughout the spring 2017 semester, the Goucher Smoke-Free Initiative working group met to discuss the process and implementation of moving towards a smoke-free campus. The group of students, faculty, and staff developed a transitional plan and corresponding policy, focused on making Goucher a healthier environment that makes quitting smoking easier and starting less appealing.
The first phase of the plan involved the prohibition of smoking of any kind outside of seven designated zones where smoking is permitted. This policy will remain in place for one year, starting on July 15, 2017. On July 15, 2018, the college will make the transition to a 100% smoke-free campus.
