Unveiling new logoQ&A
Are you filled up on the committee or are you still looking for people.
: At first I was thinking that it would be a good balance of people, but the committee isalready formed and we are already at work.
: What’s the difference between tobacco free and smoke free
Tobacco free means all tobacco including chewing tobacco has to be removed fromcampus but smoke free is only smoke.
: This is an exploration committee, but you are drafting a resolution. What does thismean?
We are only exploring the possibility and most importantly the concerns and issues likehow will this impact faculty? We are processing all of these before we make a decision
: I know that Father Steve had come up with several statements in support of thiscommittee. Are there any memos going to Father Steve on this?
The hope is that the committee will give this to SGSU and they will pass a resolution. Ihave heard that there is maybe a task force.
There is no task force.
When are we going to make a statement on it?
The hope is that SGSU will make a statement before the end of fall quarter.
