Resources to Help You Quit

Free Quit Smart Clinics for students, faculty and staff

To assist with the transition to a tobacco-free environment, the campus will offer free Quit Smart Clinics to any staff, faculty or students who wish to attend. This four-week program will teach you steps that will increase your chances of quitting and staying smoke-free. As enough interest is generated, we will schedule the Quit Smart Clinics. If you wish to attend a Quit Smart Clinic, please send an e-mail to hr@ius.edu or you can call 941-2356

All clinics will begin promptly at 12:00 Noon for 1 hour.
