Tobacco and Smoking Policy

It is the policy of the University of North Alabama to provide a "tobacco-free" and “smoke-free” environment for students, faculty, staff, and visitors. The use of tobacco products and smoking or vapor products will be prohibited within all university facilities. The use of tobacco and smoking products within thirty feet of entrances, exits, open windows, and interconnected breezeways is prohibited.

The term "tobacco-free" shall be interpreted to mean all forms of smoking tobacco, such as cigarettes, cigars and pipes, as well as smokeless tobacco products, such as snuff and chewing tobacco.

The term "tobacco product" refers to any form of tobacco consumed by smoking or non-smoking means.  The term “smoking” refers to inhaling, exhaling, burning, or carrying any lighted or heated cigar, cigarette, or pipe and to the use of any such other electronic or other device that is used as an alternative to traditional tobacco products and that produces a smoke or vapor when in use.

Exceptions to this policy may be made only by special authorization of the Executive Council and only where proper ventilation can be established.
