    The university launched the “Smoke-Free UofL” campaign to make faculty, staff and students aware of the policy. This multi-layered campaign has included email, the web, advertising and media. Signage throughout all UofL campuses reinforces the smoke-free policy. Reminders are posted periodically in UofL Today and other university communication vehicles.

    The UofL policy applies only to on-campus facilities. However, these facilities already are smoke-free.
