Taking action on smoking and health
Scotland’s colleges and universities can make practical changes to create smoke-free campuses. In doing so they can gain recognition and create learning environments that support physical and mental wellbeing and prevent ill health.
Creating a smoke-free culture on campus is central to institution’s duty of care towards all students and staff and supports wider goals such as improving attainment, student retention and improving outcomes.
ASH Scotland’s new range of resources supports colleges and universities to create learning environments that support physical and mental wellbeing and prevent ill health.
The practical resources, tools and templates take institutions step-by-step through the process of delivering a smoke-free campus policy. They have been designed to inspire positive changes on campus and support institutions to improve student and staff wellbeing. Visit www.befree.scot/colleges-universities/ to explore the resources.
