UC Berkeley is going tobacco-free on January 1, 2014 following President Yudof's leadership and mandate. A tobacco-free campus creates a healthier environment for students, faculty, staff, and visitors; helps support tobacco users who are trying to quit; and reduces the number of new tobacco users by promoting the social norm of a tobacco-free environment.
To ensure an effective transition to a tobacco-free campus, UC Berkeley is working on a campus-specific policy and implementation procedures through the Tobacco-Free Berkeley Steering Committee.
