Implementation of prohibiting smoking on campus
Smoking not only harms smokers but also may cause health problems to nearby non smokers due to passive smoking.
The Japanese government has carried out necessary studies regarding revision of Health Promotion Act for the purpose of further strengthening passive smoking prevention measures for holding of Tokyo 2020 Games, etc.
Based on these situations, JAIST examined workable passive smoking prevention measures and determined to prohibit smoking on campus from October 1, 2017 as efforts toward such prevention measures.
We ask for your understanding and cooperation.
