No Smoking Policy
Adopted September 2007
IN THE INTEREST OF SHOWING RESPECT FOR PEOPLE, HEALTH AND SUSTAINABILITY,
In response to recommendations from the UMD Student Health Advisory Committee and the UMD Campus Safety, Health and Emergency Preparedness Advisory Committee, most of the campus went smoke free in September 2007. Beginning May 31, 2008, the campus went entirely smoke free. As of July 1, 2014, UMD extended its no smoking policy to include a ban on the use of commercial tobacco products and electronic cigarettes on all University property.
The administrative policy reflects the University’s commitment to promoting and protecting the health and well-being of all campus community members and fostering an environment of respect for people and property through education and practice.
SMOKING, VAPING AND THE USE OF COMMERCIAL TOBACCO
The ban includes all indoor facilities, the entire campus grounds and all University vehicles.
Note: To process an exemption request (1-3), please contact the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Finance and Operations at firstname.lastname@example.org.
