Smoke-Free and Tobacco-Free Campus Policy Available for Comment

The University Policy Committee invites the campus community to review a proposed policy: smoke-free and tobacco-free campus policy. This policy is available on the committee's website.

This policy is a new policy establishing guidelines for the creation of a smoke-free and tobacco-free campus. UNLV is committed to providing a safe and healthy on-campus learning and work environment for its students, faculty, staff, residents, clients, contractors, vendors, and visitors. UNLV also acknowledges the multiple negative health impacts of smoking, using electronic smoking devices, and using tobacco products. It also acknowledges that these negative health impacts affect not just individuals who are smoking but also the people who are around them. The purpose of this policy is to create a timeline for a transition to a smoke free/tobacco free environment as well as offering information for campus community members who may need additional support to comply with this policy.

The smoke-free and tobacco-free campus policy will be available for comment through Aug. 12. Please submit comments. All comments will be forwarded to the policy owner for consideration.
