The Relay For Life at the University of Michigan (MRelay) is partnering with the School of Public Health and the U-M Smoke-Free Campus Initiative to create a healthier environment for our student body by promoting the adoption of a tobacco-free policy here at the University of Michigan. We believe that the University of Michigan deserves to have the healthiest and safest atmosphere possible for its students, faculty, staff, alumni, and visitors.
Our goal is for this petition to raise awareness and demonstrate concern about this public health issue on our campus.
Please share this with you fellow Wolverines in order to raise awareness and help us explore becoming a tobacco-free campus!
In July of 2011, the University of Michigan became a smoke-free campus in order to create an environment that is healthy for all of the University of Michigan community. Further research has shown that cigarettes are not the only tobacco products that kill. Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes), cigars, hookah, and smokeless tobacco products, such as chewing tobacco, can all have negative effects on one's health. There is no safe way to use commercial tobacco.
Help us be the first generation to eliminate lethal and addictive tobacco usage!
