Smoke Free and Tobacco Free Community | Webster University

Smoke Free and Tobacco Free Community

Webster University students, faculty, staff, alumni and visitors deserve the healthiest possible place to live, work and learn. While we respect the rights of those who use tobacco and other nicotine products and smoking devices, research continues to that the use of cigarettes, cigars, pipes, smokeless tobacco, and other tobacco products, as well as exposure to secondhand smoke, leads to disease and premature death for smokers and non-smokers alike. In addition, cigarette litter and smoke are toxic to our environment.                     

Because it is important to protect our community from these serious health risks and adverse environmental effects, the University’s Webster Groves, Missouri, campus will be designated as a tobacco-free and smoke-free campus effective Aug. 15, 2018, joining the many universities across the United States and in Missouri that are preparing to or have already set this policy.
