  • Northeastern moves to make campus smoke-free

    The Boston Globe - 02/04/2013

    A move to make Northeastern University smoke-free is stirring controversy on campus around issues of civil rights and questions of enforceability.

    University administrators announced in December that they had formed a committee that includes staff and students to weigh the initiative, which would make Northeastern the newest of at least 1,130 colleges nationwide to create smoke-free campuses.

    Administrators acknowledged that the issue is complicated at a sprawling urban campus such as Northeastern, because of questions about where the campus ends and where Boston begins.
