Michigan State University’s tobacco-free ordinance went into effect Aug. 15, banning the use of any form of tobacco on campus property.

The ordinance applies to all property governed by the Board of Trustees and includes not only main campus but also all MSU sites across the state, nation and globe.

In addition to traditional tobacco products such as cigarettes and chewing tobacco, the ordinance also prohibits the use of e-cigarettes and vaporizers. All FDA-approved nicotine replacement therapy products are permitted for cessation use.

The MSU Health4U program offers free tobacco and nicotine cessation resources for faculty, staff, graduate student employees, retirees and the adult benefits eligible dependents of the members of these groups. Cessation resources are available for students, employees and others at http://tobaccofree.msu.edu/cessation.
