LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — University of Kansas students and faculty can no longer use tobacco or vaping products on campus under a new policy pushed by health-conscious students.

The new school policy comes more than five years after a student survey found that 64 percent favored stricter tobacco policies. Faculty who responded at the time to an Office of Institutional Research and Planning survey agreed.
