ABSTRACT
The purpose of this study was determining strategies to increase community readiness for campus tobacco policy using the Community Readiness Model. Methods included a survey of students, faculty, staff, and administration regarding attitudes about tobacco policy, review of documentation of progress of a campus tobacco coalition, and a palm pilot survey with smokers. The survey was analyzed using SAS software. Statistical summaries and cross-tabulations were created using PROC FREQ, while significant tests were performed using PROC TEST. Results indicated the campus to be in the Initiation Stage of readiness. Strategies to advance the campus into the Stabilization Stage are included.
