The brochures and increased signage University buildings are part of ongoing efforts to build both awareness of the policy and voluntary respect and cooperation.
The Academic Senate passed a resolution April 27 calling for SFSU to become a smoke-free campus with designated smoking areas. The president endorsed the Senate's action and announced the new policy (University Executive Order #04-33: Smoke-Free Campus), effective Aug. 23.
When the new smoke-free campus policy was announced in July, President Corrigan said, "Our hope is to protect all who live, work, study or visit the campus from a major health concern: secondhand smoke."

Zingaro named director of Campus Asset and Space Administration

"President Corrigan, Provost Gemello and I are pleased that Zingaro is willing to take on this expanded role," said Vice President Morishita. "On a campus such as ours -- where construction is always happening, space is at a premium and new projects continue to be planned -- it is important that we have someone who can collaboratively and effectively plan the allocation and usage of space. She brings a wealth of experience to the job, and we look forward to working with her in this new position."
The new Campus Asset and Space Administration unit is being created to streamline project implementation and provide space and facilities planning for new building construction projects, existing projects and future building renovations.
Zingaro will provide leadership and participate on teams that address strategic space and facilities planning and construction. She will work closely with Facilities and Service Enterprises, Capital Planning, Design and Construction, the Division of Information Technology, academic units and college deans to improve campus facilities and space utilization.
Zingaro joins Administration and Finance with extensive campus experience, knowledge and expertise in the areas of space and facilities assessment, planning and space usage and allocation. Most recently, Zingaro held the post of senior project manager for space management in Academic Affairs.
