MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) The University of Minnesota is ready to impose a smoking ban at its Twin Cities campus.
The University Senate has voted in favor of the ban. The Senate includes faculty, students and staff. University President Eric Kaler says a tobacco-free campus has become an expectation, rather than an innovation.
Kaler would impose the ban, which could begin in 2014 after an educational campaign.
A survey by the university's Boynton Health Service found 67 percent of faculty and staff and 64 percent of students support a campus-wide ban on tobacco.
