UA goes Tobacco Free

 

On July 1, 2017, The University of Akron will become a tobacco-free campus, in keeping with our goal of being a safe, healthy, clean, respectful and welcoming campus.   The University rule is available here:  www.uakron.edu/ogc/UniversityRules/pdf/20-05.10.pdf

There are resources available to assist employees with this change.

  • Through IMPACT SOLUTIONS and the Employee Assistance & Work Life Program, a free QUIT CENTER is offered for employees.  
  • Smoking-cessation medications are available through the University’s pharmacy benefit. These medications are available with a zero co-payment for a 168-day supply. After the 168-day supply, the plan’s applicable copayment will apply.
