ABSTRACT
Awareness, compliance, and satisfaction are central constructs to a smoking policy. This study evaluated a new restrictive smoking policy on a university campus. An upper division class of undergraduate health education majors completed the evaluation with a survey of 300 students, faculty, and staff. Eighty-one percent of respondents were aware of the 25 ft smoking policy, and only 10% stated that they comply with the policy at all times. In addition, 42% of respondents were satisfied with the smoking policy and 6% thought the policy needed refinement. Recommendations were to increase awareness and to build a more consistent policy.
