U'S SMOKE AND TOBACCO FREE CAMPUS IS HEALTHIER, CLEANER, AND MORE INCLUSIVE
At the University of Minnesota, we’re committed to promoting and protecting the health and well-being of all campus community members. That’s why we’re proud to be smoke and tobacco free. Our goal? To create a healthier, cleaner, and more inclusive environment for everyone.
University facilities, buildings, and grounds on the Duluth, Crookston, Rochester, and Twin Cities campuses have been smoke and tobacco-free since July 1, 2014. We believe this comprehensive policy enhances the health of students, faculty, staff, and visitors by encouraging healthy lifestyle choices and limiting involuntary exposure to harmful secondhand smoke.
Read the complete policy in the Uwide Policy Library.
Creating a supportive, positive, and healthy smoke- and tobacco-free environment for the entire campus is a shared responsibility. We encourage students, staff, faculty, and visitors to promote compliance with the policy. Please read about promoting compliance prior to participating in enforcement! Enforcement Cards can also be requested here.
When posting Share the Air material in your area, please follow the University's Distributing Publications Policy. Publications—including posters, flyers, and signs—must be posted in a way that makes them easy to remove and does not cause damage to or deface the surfaces to which they are attached.
If you would like a Share the Air communication piece not in this toolkit, you can request it here.
