Implementing the Initiative

The two main components of a tobacco-free campus initiative — the policy and the expanded employee cessation services — may be implemented simultaneously or sequentially. Ideally, the expanded cessation services should be initiated some time before the policy goes into effect. This gives employees time to prepare for the policy, "softens" the announcement of the policy by making clear that the worksite is taking a supportive, nonpunitive stance towards employees who use tobacco, and gives employees an incentive to make use of the additional cessation services. Whether you launch the two components of the tobacco-free campus initiative simultaneously or successively, the following suggestions will help you implement the initiative:

  • Offering Cessation Services
  • Announcing the Policy
  • Creating a Supportive Environment
  • Enforcing the Policy
  • Monitoring a tobacco-free campus
