As we speak the Tobacco Working Group, a committee of students, faculty and administrators, is presenting their recommendations and very long report [PDF] to CCSC. Briefly, the group recommends that the university establish (and actually enforce) a “consistent distance rule” delineating a radius around Morningside campus buildings where you can’t smoke. Details to come!

Update 9:52 PM: According to Class of 2011 President Sean Udell, the report will now go to “what’s the Christian name for a waiting room?” The report states that the Tobacco Working Group will submit its recommendations to Vice President Scott Wright, although it is unclear what action will be taken next and by whom.
