Tobacco-Free Campus

Augustana University recognizes the serious health implications related to the use of tobacco products and to indirect exposure to tobacco.

In order to minimize the harmful effects and discomfort that smoking produces and because the university believes it has an obligation to promote a healthy, smoke-free environment for its students, employees and visitors, Augustana prohibits the use of tobacco products in or on university property effective Aug. 1, 2017.

Augustana is committed to assisting members of the campus community in tobacco cessation. AU recognizes that quitting tobacco use can be a significant personal challenge and tobacco-cessation programs are an integral component in implementing this policy.
