The Daily Camera reports

student leaders backed the plan Thursday, and top university officials are expected to ask the chancellor next week to create a task force to move the campus toward being smoke-free.

Deb Coffin, vice chancellor for student affairs, says the proposal calls for a "soft transition" over a two- to three-year period. She says the university might allow designated smoking areas for a semester or a year as part of that transition.

The $48,000 cost of the program would be partly covered by a grant from Boulder County Public Health.
