I am pleased to announce that as of August 15, 2014, Harvard Yard will become completely tobacco free.
We are currently working on a separate communication to students and other units within the University, as well as to visitors and tour groups. Signage will be posted in Harvard Yard on the evening of August 14 and cessation materials and resources are already available through the Department of Health Promotion & Education.
I welcome your feedback and suggestions for communicating this with the broader Harvard community. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
