Members of the Emory community will collectively share the responsibility of respectfully letting others know about our new Tobacco-free Environment Policy.
We ask for your assistance in helping to enforce the new policy, however, please remember to treat others with respect and professionalism. If you see someone smoking, we ask that you politely let them know that Emory is now a tobacco-free campus. Many of our colleagues and visitors may not be aware of the new policy, so please be respectful when addressing smokers. If someone becomes agitated or hostile upon being approached, please do not escalate the situation. Simply walk away.
Sample scripts to assist students, faculty and staff in approaching smokers on campus have been developed. Click here to download.
REPORT REPEATED VIOLATIONS
Enforcement is everyone’s responsibility. If you notice a regular pattern of smoking (someone continuing to smoke in a tobacco-free area), you can anonymously report this activity online at http://apps.hr.emory.edu/TobaccoFree.
TOBACCO FREE EMORY CARDS
“Need information on quitting tobacco? Take a Card. Want to inform someone that Emory is tobacco free? Give a card.”
