A PATH TO WELLNESS
The University at Albany is committed to the health and well-being of all members of the UAlbany community. A Tobacco- and Smoke-Free Policy and cessation resources are one way we hope to provide a path to wellness for students, faculty, and staff.
In 2010, the U.S. Surgeon General declared tobacco use as the nation's leading preventable cause of premature death and disability, and advised that there is no safe level of exposure to secondhand smoke.
Given our commitment to the health and safety of our faculty, staff, students and visitors, UAlbany joins more than 1,800 colleges and universities across the nation to adopt a tobacco- and smoke-free campus policy. This decision was carefully made following recommendations from two presidential working groups.
