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 cmich.edu/tobaccofree. The website also features a toolkit, with posters and handout cards, to help faculty, staff and students enforce the policy.
