The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a benefit for all employees, spouses, and dependents. It is 100% confidential and offers in-person or telephone sessions with Master’s-level counselors where employees can talk about a variety of concerns including smoking/tobacco issues.
Smoking is now prohibited in all university buildings and within 25 feet of all building entrances and balconies to comply with Wisconsin Act 12, “Smoke-Free Wisconsin,” as well as to support campus health and safety. The policy also prohibits smoking in parking structures and university-owned vehicles and prohibits designating any indoor location as a “smoking area.”
This online guide includes selected resources that provide information on quitting smoking or chewing tobacco.
