Tobacco Education

About the Campaign

In the Catholic, Marianist tradition, the University of Dayton promotes choices that contribute to the common good and promote the dignity of every person. This concern for the common good leads us to develop habits of self-care in pursuit of wellbeing as individuals, but also to understand and pay attention to the safety, comfort, and health of others in our community.

At the University of Dayton, promoting health and wellbeing is an extension of the University’s Marianist mission to care for the whole person.

As part of our continuing commitment to increase health and wellbeing on our campus, the “For a Healthier UD and Me" campaign was created to educate our community on the individual benefits of choosing a tobacco-free lifestyle, as well as the benefits of creating a community where everyone chooses to be tobacco-free.
By providing educational programming and cessation resources, the “For a Healthier UD and Me" campaign hopes to:

  • prevent individuals from initiating the use of tobacco products;
  • help individuals quit the use of tobacco products;
  • eliminate secondhand exposure from smoke, aerosol, and biological waste from tobacco products; and
  • create a campus environment where use of tobacco and nicotine products is not the norm.
