The Role of Public Safety

  • Officers will request compliance in a non-confrontational manner that does not include a stop

  • Respond to complaints of persistent violators

  • May report students repeatedly in violation to the Dean of Students

  • May report employees repeatedly in violation to Human Resources or Supervisors

What do you say to someone who is smoking on campus?

It can be intimidating, but remember that most tobacco users want to quit.

Try the SMOKE approach:

SMILE and introduce yourself

MAKE THE ASSUMPTION that they do not know about the policy and tell them about it

OFFER the person cessation help at Curry Health Center or Faculty-Staff Wellness

KINDLY remind them of the policy

ENFORCE the policy by asking them to dispose of their tobacco

What can smokers do while on campus?

  • UM does not require that anyone quit using tobacco, but in order to provide a clean and safe academic environment with access for all, UM has decided to go tobacco free.

  • There are many over-the-counter nicotine/tobacco replacements available. Many are the same price or less than cigarettes themselves.

  • Use the “Good Neighbor Zones”

  • We encourage those who do not want to quit to create a plan for coping while on campus. Refer to the Create a Plan for Compliance document for some helpful tips.
