Wednesday March 20th is Kick Butts Day!

In honor of Kick Butts Day on Wednesday, March 20th, UND’s Health and Wellness Hub is taking the opportunity to remind the campus community of UND’s tobacco-free campus policy and the quit tobacco resources.  Kick Butts Day, sponsored by the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids, is an annual event to raise awareness about tobacco use, the leading cause of preventable death and disease in America.

Compliance with UND’s tobacco-free campus policy is the responsibility and right of all UND students, staff, and faculty members. Tobacco use is not allowed on UND property. Tobacco use is allowed on city sidewalks adjacent to city streets. An updated map highlighting campus and city property is available at UND.edu/tobaccofree. Questions about policy applicability may be directed to the UND Environmental Health and Safety Office by telephone (701.777.3341) or e-mail (und.safety@email.und.edu).

A comprehensive array of quit tobacco options are available to help those who are ready to quit. We invite those who use tobacco to take advantage of the available support:

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

Up to $700.00 in coverage for provider visits, medications, and counseling for benefitted UND employees and their dependents

  • Health and Wellness Hub, Memorial Union: UND.edu/hwhub or 701.777.2097

Free quit kits and resources

  • Student Health Services, McCannel Hall: UND.edu/health or 701.777.4500,

Provider visits and free quit kits for students, medications available for purchase at pharmacy

Please join us in celebrating Kick Butts Day and in supporting a Tobacco-free UND throughout the year!
