This Week in Temple History
Feb. 2, 1989

    The University reported that it would issue a new policy calling for a “smoke-free environment.” The report was written by the President’s Committee on Smoking Policy and recommended that the University limit smoking to designated areas at Temple facilities and campuses.
    At the time this report was published, smoking was still considered a norm on University grounds. There were smoking and non-smoking sections in all dining areas on campus, smoking was allowed in the hallways of Temple facilities and smoking in dormitories was acceptable. Today, smoking is still allowed on the grounds of Temple campuses, but people must smoke at least 25 feet from all entrances to University facilities.
