    A Message from the President

    Hamline University has long been committed to health, wellness, and social responsibility. As of June 1, 2018, Hamline is establishing a tobacco-free policy that underscores this commitment.

    Hamline’s move to a tobacco-free campus involves a comprehensive policy that restricts the use of cigarettes, electronic cigarettes, chew, and all other forms of tobacco. This policy is in line with more than 50 other college campuses across Minnesota that are already tobacco free.

    The wellbeing of our students, employees, and visitors is of the utmost importance to the university. Input from a wide range of community stakeholders influenced the policy. Its purpose is to promote a healthier, safer, and more welcoming campus experience for everyone.

    We recognize adhering to this policy may be challenging to tobacco users. In an effort to help, the university provides various cessation resources. Creating a safe and supportive environment for those community members who wish to quit using tobacco products is key to the transition.

    This policy is meant to benefit every member of the Hamline community. The thoughtfulness and cooperation of each of us is central to its success.

    President Fayneese Miller
