ETSU Tobacco Free Committee
In 2012, a Tobacco-Free Policy Implementation and Compliance Task Group reviewed the tobacco policy and how it was monitored and campus constituents educated on the matter. The Task Group submitted a final report with recommendations that included campus patrols and a standing Tobacco Free ETSU committee. That committee is responsible for this website, logo and re-launch the Tobacco Free ETSU campaign.
