BUFFALO, N.Y. — The University at Buffalo — on the American Cancer Society’s annual Great American Smokeout — today announced plans to implement a 100 percent smoke-free policy that will take effect beginning with the 2009-10 academic year.

Under the plan, smoking will not be allowed in any buildings or on the grounds — including parking lots and green spaces — on UB’s three campuses and at all offsite UB locations.

Plans to implement the policy were announced today by David L. Dunn, M.D., Ph.D., UB vice president for health sciences.

As part of its UBreathe Free initiative, he said UB “will be offering ongoing services on campus to assist smokers with quitting and to raise awareness of the initiative.”
