U-M Campus Plans To Go Smoke-Free In July

Ann Arbor -(WWJ/AP) —  The University of Michigan is releasing details of its plans to implement the school’s smoke-free policy that goes into effect July 1st.

 School President Mary Sue Coleman has approved a final report on the policy. The plan was crafted after more than a year of input.

The report includes recommendations that define campus smoke-free boundaries. It also spells out plans for helping smokers quit if they want assistance.

Smoking will be banned at all school facilities, buildings and grounds. Smoking will be allowed on sidewalks adjacent to public thoroughfares.

Plans for the ban were announced two years ago. 

The smoking ban will be enforced by voluntary compliance, along with peer and supervisory support, rather than fines.
