The laundry list of risks associated with tobacco use is long. Various forms of cancer, lung disease, and tooth decay, along with other more cosmetic consequences are a few of the most well known dangers. However, tobacco use affects more than just the user. In an effort to better serve the campus and out of respect for others and the campus environment, a 100% tobacco free UNK is proposed. This booklet was produced to educate the campus community about tobacco issues and the proposed strategy to make UNK 100% tobacco-free. This initiative can open the door to endless possibilities for our campus, from being the first University of Nebraska institution to go tobacco-free to becoming the healthiest city in Nebraska.
