RENO, Nev. (AP) — The University of Nevada, Reno is gearing up to go tobacco-free by August 2015.

The move is supported by faculty and employee groups as well as graduate and undergraduate student associations.

UNR will join nearly 1,200 other U.S. colleges and universities that have implemented a tobacco-free policy.

UNR President Marc Johnson says the move is in line with the university's mission to emphasize health and well-being among its students and the community.

Besides educating students and faculty about the policy, officials say implementation will include promoting programs to help people to quit smoking.
