Implementation and enforcement of our tobacco-free campus is our shared, community responsibility. This means all students, faculty, and staff share in the responsibility to help keep our campus tobacco-free. Signage to help inform our campus community and visitors will be placed throughout campus.

Expert sources indicate that tobacco policy enforcement is most effective when based on qualities of respect for each other and for the environment, rather than being punitive in nature. Therefore, enforcement will adhere to this model of mutual respect. You may review these possible talking points to help you respectfully inform others of our policy.

We hope that all members of our MGA community will be good campus citizens by demonstrating compliance with the policy. It is our hope that this model will be adequate. If not, violation of this policy may result in corrective action under the Student Code of Conduct or campus human resource policies. Persons refusing to comply may be asked to leave campus.
