Kent State Smoke-Free Campus Survey

Kent State Smoke-Free Campus Survey

To the Kent State University Community:

As an institution of higher learning, Kent State is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for its students, employees and visitors at all of our locations. In light of the recommendation by the Ohio Board of Regents that all public colleges in Ohio implement a smoking ban, President Lester A. Lefton has asked us to lead a committee to study this proposal.

The president’s charge to the committee is to gather input from the university community, examine the pros and cons of having a smoke-free campus, and make a recommendation to his office for consideration.  Our committee members represent many different facets of the university population including: faculty, staff, students, representatives from student government and representatives from academic units related to healthcare.

An integral part of this process is to gather input from the university community. Please let us know what you think by visiting to take our five-minute online survey by Nov. 30. Your feedback will help us develop a recommendation to send forward to President Lefton. 

Once you have completed the survey, you will be entered into a random drawing to win your choice of a $25 Starbucks or Kent State Bookstore gift card. Eight gift cards will be awarded.

Thank you for your participation.
