If the air seems a little clearer on the UT Arlington campus, your eyes—and nose—aren’t deceiving you. On Aug. 1 the University became tobacco free. Following almost two years of campus-wide discussion and planning, the University instituted the policy, which prohibits the use of tobacco products anywhere on campus, including outdoors. “The use of tobacco is a serious issue that affects the health and well-being of our entire University community,” President James D. Spaniolo says. “UT Arlington is taking an active and positive step toward creating a healthier environment for our students, faculty, staff, and visitors.” For those wanting to quit using tobacco, the University offers a series of free cessation education courses.
