University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) will join approximately 2,000 universities across the country that have become smoke-free campuses on August 15, 2022. This updated policy was led by the UNLV School of Public Health in collaboration with the Southern Nevada Health District, American Lung Association, American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, Nevada Public Health Association and the Nevada Tobacco Prevention Coalition, and will apply to students, faculty, staff and visitors on all UNLV properties.
"By becoming a smoke-free, vape-free, and tobacco-free campus, those at UNLV will be protected from involuntary exposure to tobacco and passive smoke," said said Shawn Gerstenberger, dean of the UNLV School of Public Health. "It will also establish a supportive atmosphere for those trying to quit tobacco, and create a culture of wellness for the campus community."
