Smoking Policy

Effective May 2014 

Purpose

UW-Sheboygan is committed to providing facilities for its faculty, staff and students that are well maintained and promote academic excellence.  To that end, UW-Sheboygan is a tobacco and smoke-free facility.  This policy is not intended to control any person’s personal choice to use tobacco or alternative smoking products, but rather to support a safer and healthier environment for individuals to live, work, and learn. 

Policy

The use of all tobacco products (cigarettes, cigars, pipes and smokeless or oral tobacco such as “dip” or “snuff”) and alternative tobacco-like smoking products or methods (such as “e-cigarettes”) is prohibited in vehicles and anywhere within the buildings and grounds of the campus, recreational areas, and surrounding wooded areas with the exception of designated smoking areas where a smoking receptacle is located. 

Scope

This policy applies to all employees, students, visitors, suppliers and the public.  It includes all the buildings and property leased by the University of Wisconsin Board Of Regents for the operation of UW-Sheboygan.  

Procedure

Campus leadership will work to communicate this policy to our employees, students, and the public.  The Buildings and Grounds department will identify and install appropriate signage to be put up in the buildings and around the campus grounds. 

Enforcement

This policy is enforceable under various state and local ordinances and UW System policies. All faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to notify and/or remind individuals that we are a tobacco and smoke-free campus.  Infractions should be referred to the Assistant Dean for Administrative and Financial Services, Assistant Dean for Student Affairs, and/or the Campus Dean.
