The Initiative collaborates closely with the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) as well as academic leaders, public health advocates, students, researchers, and other concerned citizens across the U.S. to accelerate the elimination of tobacco use on college campuses everywhere. The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH) and ASPPH have tasked ASPPH-member institutions with committing to the promotion of a 100 percent smoke-free or tobacco-free policy at their institution. CECH and CPH credits will be available.
