The University of Illinois Springfield is asking for input from student and staff on whether the campus should go completely smoke-free.
Currently UIS allows smoking in some designated outdoor areas… but the Urbana campus recently announced plans to ban all smoking anywhere on campus property. So the Springfield campus wants to measure sentiment about such a move here as well.
In addition to the student-staff survey, UIS will also ask the opinions of Sangamon Auditorium patrons, who are currently allowed to step outside to have a cigarette. A final decision could come early next year.
