One-day stand against tobacco challenge is Nov. 19

The university will participate in a national “1 Day Stand Against Tobacco” campaign from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Nov. 19, in the Student Center.

SIU Carbondale is one of many campuses across the country who has adopted a smoke-free policy. The campaign, supported by the Tobacco-Free College Campus Campus Initiative Challenge, is designed to raise awareness of the harmful effects of tobacco use and second-hand smoke and help tobacco users to quit.

Faculty and students are encouraged to visit the interactive booth at the north escalators to learn about available resources, including smart phone applications, that can help people quit tobacco use.
