UNE Becomes a tobacco and smoke free campus
Smoke and tobacco use in the workplace have become an important health issue and there is considerable evidence that smoke is harmful not only to smokers but to non-smokers. The University of New England became 100% tobacco-free campus effective July 1, 2014. This policy change does not prohibit a person from smoking in general, but does prohibit smoking on campus. For those wishing to make a life style change, the University offers and can connect you to many resources.
