Read the Policy
Final Draft - 4/2/07; Effective August 1, 2007
Indiana University has determined that all campuses will be smoke-free in order to promote the health and well-being of employees, students, and constituents. Two of the IU campuses are already smoke-free as well as all medical facilities of the Clarian Health Partners system. Further, several major hospitals and communities in our region have also developed smoke-free policies or are moving in that direction. This campus policy is in response to the University-wide policy requirement as well as the overall desire to provide a healthier work and learning environment for our campus community.
The use or sale of tobacco or tobacco products is prohibited on university-owned, -operated, -or leased property.
The use or sale of tobacco or tobacco products is prohibited in university-owned, -leased, -or operated vehicles.
The use of tobacco or tobacco products in personal vehicles is allowable.
Enforcement of this policy will depend upon all members of the campus community to comply with and encourage others to comply with this policy in order to ensure a healthy environment to work, study, and live.
Violations of the policy will be handled through existing processes already in place for students, faculty, and staff. This policy will be incorporated into the IU Southeast Faculty Manual and Staff Handbook. Student violations will be processed under the Student Code of Conduct. Complaints regarding violations of this policy should be referred to the appropriate office: For faculty,the Office of Academic Affairs, for staff, Human Resources; and for students, Office of Student Affairs.
Smoking cessation programs will be offered to all employees and students at little or no cost to the participants. Continuation of the cessation programs will be evaluated annually to determine if these programs should be continued based on interest and participation.
