As of August 1, 2013, the Summerville and Forest Hills campuses became tobacco-free.
The use of tobacco products of any kind is prohibited on all GRU properties, including academic, research and clinical buildings, parking lots and green spaces on the main campus and at satellite facilities such as our West Augusta practice site and the College of Nursing facilities in Athens. This new policy applies to employees, students, patients and visitors.
We hope you will take advantage of the resources provided by this Web site as well as the healthier environment of the GRU campus.
A campus-wide, creative, teaching and learning competition promoting “Smoke-Free/Tobacco-Free Matters In Learning Environments,” the SMILE Competition is a social media-based competition where GRU students and employees have a chance to develop an effective and creative way to stop others from using tobacco.
