Kick Butts Day is Wednesday, March 21st

In honor of Kick Butts Day on Wednesday, March 21st, the Healthy UND Tobacco Free Campus Task Group is taking the opportunity to highlight the tobacco free campus policy and quit tobacco options.  Kick Butts Day, founded by the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids, is a national day to raise awareness about tobacco use, the leading cause of preventable death and disease.

UND is a tobacco free campus, which means tobacco use in any form is not allowed on university property. Tobacco use is allowed on city streets and sidewalks adjacent to these streets.  Each and every UND community member, including students, administrators, faculty and staff, play an important role in ensuring the success of this policy.   Here are some things you can do to support a tobacco-free UND:

We encourage those who use tobacco to take advantage of the following services to help you quit:

Free telephone or on-line support and free nicotine replacement medications

Thank you for joining us in our efforts to promote a healthy learning environment on campus!
