Out of respect for others and the campus environment, the University of Central Missouri became a tobacco-free campus on January 1, 2014. In consideration of those who may find it difficult not to use tobacco while on campus, individuals may continue to use tobacco in their personal vehicles.You may read the entire policy online.
A map of UCM property boundaries has been created to assist those who would like to know what areas are including in the policy.
Questions, comments and suggestions about the new tobacco-free policy may be directed to the University Policy Office.
Provost Curtis has appointed a Tobacco Policy Procedures committee. Mollie Dinwiddie, Dean of Library Services, is chair of the committee. Mollie can be reached at 660-543-4140 or firstname.lastname@example.org. This committee is charged with the continued implementation and evaluation of the tobacco-free policy. Questions or comments submitted online will be reviewed by this committee.
Information sessions about the tobacco-free policy are available for groups, departments or organizations. If you would like to request an information session for your department or group please contact Rhonda Neill at 660-543-4044.
