2. The Applied Science Private University pays great attention to community service and the health of its students, so the university president instructed Prof. Dr.  Mahfouz Judeh joined the Jordanian Universities Association to Combat Smoking as a first step to participate in reducing the phenomenon of smoking and its problems.
 A committee concerned with this issue was also established, including deans of colleges at the university, to draw a road map and take important decisions in this regard.
 The university participated in the first meeting, which was held on Monday, May 22, 2017, to discuss plans and work mechanisms for universities in Jordan to implement the instructions issued by Law No. 26 related to prohibiting smoking on university campuses.  It was also agreed to extend bridges of cooperation between the university and the Ministry of Health, in cooperation with the World Health Organization.  The university had a constructive presence in the workshop held on Wednesday, May 24, 2017, entitled 'Training anti-smoking liaison officers from ministries and institutions', where Jordan's epidemiological situation was discussed locally, regionally, and globally.
 Dr. was chosen.  Sanaa Shakhshir, who has long experience in serving the Jordanian pharmaceutical community, as the anti-smoking liaison officer for the university.
 It is worth noting that the university has actually begun to implement a long road map developed to reduce the phenomenon of smoking on campus and to help and encourage students to quit and not return to this phenomenon that is fatal to their health.
