CMU becomes tobacco-free July 1

Central Michigan University's tobacco-free policy will go into effect Tuesday, eliminating the use of tobacco products at all CMU locations. The policy, first announced on Oct. 29, 2013, will help provide a healthy environment for living, learning and working.

The tobacco-free policy will ban all forms of tobacco products including traditional cigarettes, e-cigarettes, chewing tobacco, pipes, cigars, hookahs, water pipes, snus and snuff. Exceptions may be made for theatrical productions, as well as religious rituals, ceremonies, and cultural and ethnic events.​

Details about the new tobacco-free policy can be found at The website also features a toolkit, with posters and handout cards, to help faculty, staff and students enforce the policy.
