Beginning July 1st, Central Michigan University will become tobacco free.
CMU's website states that this is part of their commitment to providing a healthy environment for learning, living, and working. The policy, "A Breath of Fresh Air," will eliminate the use of tobacco products anywhere on campus, indoors and out. In a campus-wide survey conducted last year, almost 70% of students and staff favored a tobacco-free campus. Since 1992, CMU has prohibited smoking inside all campus buildings and vehicles and within 25 feet of any entrance, exit, or window. About 800 other college institutions, around the nation, participate in tobacco-free campuses.
