The purpose of my project, “Kick Butts: Tobacco-Free SNHU,” is to provide tobacco awareness and education on campus. The main objective of this initiative is to create a positive difference whether it be informing students of the current policy or changing it to adapt to the needs of the community. Conducting action research such as a student survey, information interviews, and literature reviews including guides from other colleges and universities in the United States, will be vital in determining whether a tobacco-free campus would be beneficial at Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) or not. By being the Student Representative of the Safety Committee, creating a display for Kick Butts Day in March, writing to the school newspaper, communicating with Student Government Association (SGA), and putting an end to the cigarette butt waste on campus, I hope to gain a better understanding of the attitudes and opinions of the community. If the majority of the SNHU community is in favor of having a tobacco-free campus, I will initiate the necessary steps to create a positive change. (Author abstract)
