More than 5,000 University of Toledo students responded to a survey asking whether smoking should be banned on Main Campus. Slightly more than 60 percent voted for a Main Campus smoking ban.

As a result, Student Government leaders are asking faculty and staff to weigh in with their views. To vote, click here.

Votes will be accepted through Friday, Dec. 20.

Student Government President Emily Kramp and Student Government Vice President Lauren Jencen have noted that more institutions across the nation are moving toward making campuses smoke-free and point out that Health Science Campus has been smoke-free for several years.

According to Kramp and Jencen, before presenting a suggestion of policy change to the University Council and UT Board of Trustees, it is imperative to obtain the opinions of faculty and staff so that all impacted by the ban have a voice in the decision.
