Concordia University of Edmonton became a smoke-free campus last summer. As a health-promoting university we came to realize that condoning smoking on campus was inconsistent with the advancement of a healthy campus community, both for smokers and non-smokers. An additional benefit has been the heightened awareness amongst our community of the dangers of smoking, as well as ways of quitting for those who want to. Going smoke-free has been very positive for CUE.
