  • Northeastern University says it’s readying to butt out

    Metro Boston - 05/16/2013

    The university formally announced Tuesday that it will be among the first colleges in the Boston area to implement a campus-wide ban on smoking.

    While other Greater Boston colleges ban smoking within so many feet of a building or just on their medical campuses, Northeastern’s new policy bans smoking on all campus grounds.

    “There’s a lot of enthusiasm and I think people basically understand this is a public health service,” said Terry Fulmer, dead of the university’s Bouve College of Health Sciences. Fulmer also co-chaired the 10-person committee that examined instituting a smoke-free campus policy.
