UAA Chancellor Tom Case designates Nov. 21 UAA Smoke Free Day in support of the American Cancer Society’s national Great American Smokeout campaign.
Yesenia Camarena and Valeria Delgado, student leaders for the smoke-free campus movement at UAA, stand in front of a sign allowing smoking outside campus buildings. UAA students approved a smoke-free campus in the April 2014 USUAA election. Now students are working to win support from staff and faculty. If the policy is implemented, it will allow a year for educating affected audiences. The students hope to see it in place by 2015. (Photo by Ted Kincaid/University of Alaska Anchorage)
