PASS (Peers Advocating Smoke-free Solutions)
PASS is a peer education group that focuses on tobacco prevention, education and cessation on our campus and in the community through advocacy and policy change. The group is comprised of students who are interested in contributing to clean air on campus and student wellness. This group was instrumental in Columbia bars/restaurants becoming smoke-free in 2007, and also in Mizzou’s efforts to become a smoke-free campus. Throughout the year, PASS does many activities on campus and in the community, including:
- Annual “Kiss Me, I’m a Non-Smoker” student services wellness fair, which reaches about 1,000 students
- Outreach and education on tobacco issues in the local high schools
- An annual event in November to promote quitting as part of the Great American Smokeout
- Attending/presenting on relevant tobacco issues at regional and national peer education conferences
