Smoking Policy: Reminder from Staff Council

02/13/2012

Contributed by Karenn Reeter

Staff Council encourages smoking responsibly by choosing a designated location and by encouraging fellow smokers to do the same. Please keep public areas smoke-free and save your co-workers the embarrassment of asking you to move or having to tolerate the smoke. Asthma, a common ailment, is especially aggravated by second-hand smoke and pregnant colleagues will greatly benefit from a smoke-free environment.

Thank you!

Karenn Reeter, Staff Council Chair 2010-2012

ITHACA COLLEGE SMOKING POLICY
