TOBACCO-FREE POLICY: Eastern Michigan University is now tobacco-free. The policy applies to all university employees, students, visitors, contractors, volunteers and service representatives while on EMU property.
Smoking and the use of tobacco is prohibited in or on all university owned, operated, or leased buildings, facilities and grounds, including vehicles. The grounds of the EMU campus are also tobacco free, as are the grounds of any off-campus facilities owned or leased in total by the University. The areas extend up to and not beyond the publicly owned, perimeter sidewalks of the EMU campus, which lie on public roads, as designated by the University.
This tobacco-free policy is intended to support a healthy learning, living, and work environment for every student, employee and visitor. Tobacco use is the single most preventable cause of disease, disability and death in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The policy promotes and protects the well-being of all campus members, users and non-users alike. For more information, please visit www.emich.edu/tobaccofree.

DO YOU HAVE ESP? GET DUO 2-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION TO HELP COMBAT PHISHING ATTACKS: You are the perfect catch for a Phishing attempt! You have an identity, you have access to sensitive data and you have money. All cyber criminals need to do is reel in your password. To help combat phishing attacks, EMU provides all employees with access to Duo’s 2-Factor authentication. Duo makes use of “something you know” (your password) and “something you have” (your phone). Even if your password is stolen, cyber criminals cannot access your Duo protected accounts without also stealing your phone. We encourage all VPN and Banner users to enroll in a 2 hour Eagle Security Package (ESP) session where you will install and be trained on Duo and LastPass (a password vault), and learn other ways to keep your data secure. Sign up today at: http://emu-esp.eventbrite.com/. More information along with installation instructions to install Duo yourself, if you prefer, is available at: http://www.emich.edu/it/security/esp/duo.php. Questions or concerns may be directed to Rocky Jenkins (firstname.lastname@example.org, or 734.487.3145).
