Purpose and Summary

At the time the original Smoking and Tobacco Policy was under review in August 2014, there was extensive discussion and concern from campus constituents regarding the proposed ban on e-cigarettes on campus. It was decided to make an exception permitting electronic cigarettes until a task force of University stakeholders could research this issue further. That task force has now concluded its work and issued a recommendation that e-cigarettes (officially “electronic nicotine delivery systems”) no longer be permitted on campus. The task force's summary and recommendations are linked below under Related Resources.
