On April 12, 2006, the President’s Cabinet approved changes to the university’s policy regarding the use of tobacco products on campus. These changes were adopted after an extensive review of campus policies, practices, and literature regarding smoking on college campuses across America. The University Social and Community Concerns Committee completed an extensive report on this matter November 30, 2005. The report was submitted for review and comment to the Student Government Association, the Faculty Senate and the Classified and Unclassified Employee Advisory Committees. The President’s Cabinet considered comments submitted by these various campus constituencies when it adopted the following policy regarding the use of tobacco products on campus.
Use of Tobacco Products on Campus Effective August 1, 2006
The use of tobacco products is prohibited in and within 25 feet of university buildings and on university sidewalks.
