Blue Ridge Community and Technical College President Dr. Peter Checkovich agrees that affordability is a key factor in this discussion.

"We hope that our senators will reach an agreement that will not double the current rates," Checkovich said.

Dr. Peter Checkovich, BRCTC's president, said there would be two ways to go about this process by an administrative procedure, which would be a notice directly from the president stating the campus would be going tobacco-free, or by implementing a board policy. Checkovich did not recommend using an administrative procedure, because he felt it would not allow for the type of debate that should follow this type of issue.
"If we are going to do this properly, I think it should be a board policy. This can be brought before the board next time, once the policy goes out for comment for 30 days. We can then react to comment, and if we change anything, it would go back out for another 30-day comment period," Checkovich said.
Checkovich said the time frame provided by Ruble was only to serve as a suggestion, and the process could be structured at a much slower implementation rate.
"The amount of students who smoke would nearly make up the majority, and I have some concerns there would be a challenge with that," Checkovich said.
The vote was tabled, and Checkovich requested more information and research be provided by the next board meeting. He also requested additional ideas, including what accommodations the college would need to make for smokers if the policy was not passed.
