Tobacco-Free University Enforcement

The success of this initiative requires courtesy, respect and cooperation from all members of the University of Nevada, Reno community.  Community involvement was crucial to our campus decision to move to a Tobacco Free University, and we request that same collaborative spirit as we move forward.  Successful implementation will be based in education and awareness.   Other universities have demonstrated success with this model of education and awareness.

Community Involvement

Extensive marketing has been done to prepare the campus community to be a Tobacco Free University and that education will continue.  There may still be individuals, especially visitors, who are not aware of this initiative.  Members of the University of Nevada, Reno community will share the responsibility of respectfully letting others know about the Tobacco Free University initiative. If you see someone smoking or using tobacco, we ask that you politely let them know that the University of Nevada, Reno is now tobacco-free!  Below are some resources that may help.
