On Monday, February 20, 2017 Marquette University Academic Senate unanimously endorsed the Marquette University Student Government (MUSG) and Student Health Advisory Board (SHAB) Tobacco Free Policy.
After five years of work led by students across campus, University approval for the policy is complete. Beginning immediately, MUSG will work with University offices including Facilities, Planning, and Management, and Office of Marketing and Communication on Implementation.
The policy will take effect August 1, 2017.
Former MUSG Senator and Chairman of SHAB Joseph Fuchs said, “Countless hours have been spent formulating this policy with students, staff, and faculty. I am excited to see the impact that a tobacco free campus has on the health and wellbeing of the Marquette community.”
