Tobacco Free Policy
On January 1, 2011, UMaine joined a growing number, now nearly 400, of colleges and universities around the country that are tobacco-free. Implementation followed more than three years of study and planning managed by a committee of faculty members, staff members and students. A good deal of information about UMaine’s plan and the new policy is online at http://umaine.edu/tobaccofree/.
