smoke-free campus survey

The university is conducting a survey to gauge interest in creating a tobacco/smoke-free campus policy.

The survey, which is open to students, faculty and staff from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. March 8, will measure support for and against a policy to prohibit the use of all smoke and vapor products (cigarettes, cigars, pipes, hookahs, electronic cigarettes and similar devices) campuswide, including outdoor areas. The university currently prohibits the use of tobacco products inside and within a designated proximity to campus buildings and sports venues, as well as inside university vehicles.

Student responses will be collected through the Association of Students of the University of Nebraska elections, specifically senate bill No. 14. Students will be able to access the ASUN ballot by logging into MyRed.

Faculty and staff received instructions about the one-question survey via email. The survey is available online.

The survey is being completed by the ASUN Campus Life and Safety Committee and the Tobacco-Free Campus Taskforce.
