UIS Tobacco Free Policy Effective July 1, 2015

In preparation for a new state law banning smoking on all college and university campuses in Illinois, the University of Illinois Springfield begins a two-phase Tobacco-Free Policy beginning July 1, 2015

Message from Chancellor Koch:

A campus task force developed a two-year phased approach for implementation of a tobacco-free campus policy at UIS. Starting July 1, 2015, the use of all tobacco products on university property (except in privately owned vehicles traveling or parked on campus) will be prohibited. The policy begins on the same day the Illinois Smoke-Free Campus Act goes into effect statewide. The law bans smoking on all college and university campuses, except in private vehicles.
