Residents and businesses adjacent to the campus of Northern Illinois University are invited to a community conversation about NIU’s draft Smoke-Free NIU policy. Per the State of Illinois’ Smoke Free Campus Act, smoking and tobacco use on all campus property, including outdoor spaces, will be prohibited as of July 1, 2015.
More information about the proposed policy and the state law is available at the Smoke-Free NIU website, http://www.niu.edu/smokefree/. There is a tab on the website for submission of comments and questions.
The meeting will be on March 9, 2015 from 3:30-5:00 pm in the Regency Room of the Holmes Student Center. Parking in the Visitor Parking Lot will be free. If there is an attendant in the Visitor Lot, please mention attending the Smoke Free NIU Community Conversation.
