UI goes tobacco-free statewide.

MOSCOW — In order to provide a healthier and cleaner atmosphere for the entire Vandal community, the University of Idaho has enacted a tobacco-free policy for its statewide locations.

University administration has been examining its tobacco policies since 2012, when a group of students in the College of Education’s movement sciences program launched a project looking at the impact of tobacco use on the campus community.

“This student-led policy change will provide a healthier and cleaner atmosphere for our university family,” said President Chuck Staben. “I am proud to support this initiative and encourage all Vandals to make choices that protect their bodies and our collective environment.”

The policy has been published UI’s Administrative Procedures Manual and went into effect July 1, 2016, at UI’s educational and research centers across the state/Savannah Tranchel, University of Idaho. More here.
