Michigan University To Ban Smoking, Tobacco From Campus

Central Michigan University plans to become tobacco-free starting July 1 as part of an effort to improve the health and well-being of students and employees.

 

The Mount Pleasant school says the policy, "A Breath of Fresh Air," will eliminate the use of tobacco products indoors or outdoors on campus. 

School President George Ross says in a statement that the university wants to "provide everyone with a chance to attend school, live and work in a safe and healthy environment."

 

Central Michigan University's current smoke-free policy has been in effect since 1992, prohibiting smoking in all buildings and university vehicles, as well as within 25 feet from any entrance, exit, air intake duct or window of a university building. 

The school says students pushed for the policy change.
