In less than a month, Missouri S&T will become a tobacco-free university. A new website, tobaccofree.mst.edu, is now available with resources to help campus community members with the transition to a tobacco-free campus. The site also includes information on how to quit tobacco use, available resources for students, faculty and staff, and how to address violations of the policy once it goes into effect on Aug. 1. A map showing boundaries of the campus will also be posted on the website soon.
On May 6, Missouri S&T announced the decision to become a tobacco-free university effective Aug. 1. Missouri S&T will join over 1,000 other colleges and universities in the U.S. that have chosen to go tobacco-free or smoke-free. The decision follows months of deliberation on campus, including open forums, online feedback, revisions to a proposed policy by a campus work group, and reviews by the Missouri S&T Chancellor’s Council and Chancellor’s Cabinet.
