What is the reason for Ohio University going smoke and tobacco-free?
Ohio University strives to foster a healthy and productive environment for everyone on its campus. Research and recommendations from the Board of Regents, The American College Health Association, and the Surgeon General encouraged us to move forward in our smoke and tobacco-free initiative. After providing two surveys in two years, a majority of the respondents were supportive of initiating a smoke and tobacco-free campus. The smoke and tobacco-free policy also encourages a cleaner and greener campus while preparing our students for future tobacco-free environments.
