The goal of our project is to reinforce UCSB's tobacco-free mandate that was introduced in 2014 by eradicating smoking areas and educating students on the negative effects of tobacco. All UC campuses were supposed to be tobacco and smoke-free schools, yet the UCSB campus still contains a designated smoking area directly in front of the Davidson Library (UC Santa Barbara Smoke-Free and Tobacco-Free Frequently Asked Questions). As explained by the CDC, tobacco use leads to a plethora of health problems ranging from physical to mental, and not only affects the smoker but also imposes second-hand health repercussions onto those around them. Our goal is to gather at least 2,000 signatures of UCSB staff and students supporting the movement to strictly enforce UCSB's smoke-free and tobacco-free policy. All in all, we believe that through the support of UCSB campus members we can propel UCSB into an entirely tobacco-free campus with zero tolerance nor opportunity for tobacco while simultaneously educating students and staff members about the health risks associated with tobacco.
