Manor College is taking steps to encourage healthy living this summer by becoming a smoke-free campus. The college is committed to making its campus environment an enjoyable and healthy place to learn and live. For these reasons, Manor College is now a smoke-free campus, as of July 1, 2018.
Manor College President, Dr. Jonathan Peri, stated, “Our campus at Manor is an oasis with green spaces, the Jenkintown/Tacony Creek in our backyard, and the neighboring 130 acre Alverthorpe Park, so moving to a smoke-free campus not only makes health and mission sense, but it’s also a reflection of caring for creation all around us.”
Tina Colella, Manor College Human Resources Manager, said, “The overall goal in the creation of our new policy is to have a healthier campus. Going smoke-free improves quality of life, promotes health and wellness throughout the Manor community and creates a safe and healthy working and living environment.”
