UMass Dartmouth Campus To Be Smoke-Free By June, 2015

Jim Phillips / TSM

A committee of students and faculty members is recommending that the UMass Dartmouth campus go smoke-free, tobacco free and e-cigarette free as of June 1st, 2015.

In a letter to the campus community, Provost Muhammad Karim says the committee is also recommending the university develop a robust and accessible smoking cessation program to help current smokers quit.

The Provost says the committee came to its recommendations after conducting a campus-wide survey and meeting with groups of students.  Provost Karim says the announcement is a first step in creating a healthier campus.

He says meetings will be held in the fall to plan strategies to implement the decision.
