Smoke Free U of M


In our ongoing effort to create an environment that is healthy for all members of our community, the University of Michigan will become a smoke-free university. This will help ensure a healthier environment for faculty, staff, students and visitors.

Some background about the initiative:

**All campuses of the University will be smoke-free by July 2011. This extends the smoke-free environment of our University buildings to the campus grounds.

**A steering committee, co-chaired by Kenneth Warner, dean of the School of Public Health, and Dr. Robert Winfield, chief health officer and director of the University Health Service, is developing an implementation plan. Subcommittees have been formed and are meeting.

**The Dearborn and Flint campuses have representatives participating in all subcommittees, but will be responsible for their own implementation plans.

**Committee recommendations will be made to President Coleman by Fall 2010 to guide the implementation of a smoke-free campus.
