UMaine Observes Great American Smokeout Today

Vice President for Administration and Finance Janet Waldron is reminding members of the University of Maine community that today is the 35th anniversary of the Great American Smokeout, and that the campus is just weeks away from becoming a smoke-free environment, joining some 400 other colleges and universities around the country. Information about the new policy and resources to help break the tobacco habit are available on the UMaine website dedicated to the subject. Today’s observance includes a presentation of information in the Memorial Union, soon to be followed by educational flyers, signs and other information about UMaine’s adoption of the tobacco-free policy.
