Tobacco-Free Policy

Responsible Office or Person: Public Safety


In order to provide a healthy working and living environment for Carroll’s students, staff, faculty and neighbors, Carroll University is a tobacco-free campus. The use of tobacco and electronic nicotine delivery systems is not permitted in university buildings, on university grounds or in university-owned vehicles.There are no designated smoking areas on campus.


Scientific findings, as summarized by the United States surgeon general, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency, identify electronic cigarette and tobacco use as a public health risk.  In light of the health hazard associated with these substances for users and non-users, Carroll University has adopted a tobacco-free campus.


The use of tobacco products and electronic nicotine delivery systems (including cigarettes, cigars, pipes, smokeless tobacco, other tobacco products, electronic cigarettes, personal vaporizers and other similar devices) is prohibited at all times.  All buildings and grounds, including academic, administrative, dining, residential, service and mixed use facilities and all vehicles owned, operated or leased by Carroll University, are entirely tobacco-free.  The university will not sell, market, or promote tobacco products.  The tobacco-free policy applies to all indoor and outdoor air space.


All members of the campus community are responsible for enforcing this policy.  Anyone who observes a violation of this policy should make the violator aware of the restrictions contained in this policy.  Employees or students who observe a violator’s refusal to adhere to this policy may report the violator to an appropriate authority. Such authorities may include vice Presidents, deans, chairs, directors, managers, or the Department of Public Safety.  Upon receiving a report, the authority shall inform the violator’s supervisor (if the violator is an employee) or the Office of Student Conduct (if the violator is a student).
