UW-River Falls Administrative Policy
The development of this non-smoking policy was based on faculty, staff and student deliberations and recommendations. The recognition of the substantial health risk that can occur when people are exposed to tobacco smoke was a critical consideration in the formation of this policy.
It is understood that many campus smokers will face some difficulty as this policy is implemented. Those individuals who wish to quit smoking should contact Campus Counseling Services. Counseling Services will be able to assist through the development of support groups and provide both general information and referrals. Some health insurance plans also provide assistance to those attempting to stop smoking. Contact the Personnel/ Payroll Services Office to determine insurance coverage prior to enrolling in a program.
The UW-River Falls Chancellor issues this policy in accordance with the Administrative Policy process.
The VCAF is responsible for the administration of this policy. Request an exception to this policy by writing to email@example.com.
Failure to adhere to the provisions of this policy may result in appropriate disciplinary action as provided under existing procedures applicable to students, faculty, and staff, and/or civil or criminal prosecution.
Smoking is not allowed in any UW-River Falls campus building or State vehicle; and effective January 1, 2004, smoking will be banned within 25 feet of all campus buildings. It is expected that all individuals will comply with this policy.
