Waco, Tx — Baylor student senate has put the wheels in motion, pressing Baylor University administrators to declare the school "smoke-free".
Last thursday, the student senate voted and passed the bill. The first reading of the bill happened three weeks prior. The bill has now been delivered to administrators.
Now, it's up to the administration, partnering with students, faculty, and staff, to fully implement a no smoking campus. We're told this process could take up to a year. Baylor's student senate leaders are following a similar smoke-free bill that was implemented at UT.
Baylor's student sentate says eliminating smoking is not only beneficial for health reasons, but it will also open up the university to be eligible for more grant funding.
