Chancellor Phil DiStefano signed the University of Colorado's no-smoking policy Wednesday, making the school the second in the PAC-12 with such a ban. Until the measure officially goes into place Aug. 19, school officials will be exploring where to put a limited number of designated smoking areas, as well as alerting students and employees about the new policy.

CU is beginning with an educational phase of its ban, putting up no-smoking signs and linking smokers who want to quit with resources to help. By the end of the calendar year, officials will decide whether having designated smoking areas -- away from main thoroughfares -- are effective and needed in the future, said Malinda Miller-Huey, a campus spokeswoman.
