Minnesota State University Moorhead is committed to creating a clean, safe, and healthy living, learning, and working environment for all students, employees and guests in all University facilities and any other property controlled by the University including state-owned, leased, or rented vehicles.
Smoking, tobacco use, and tobacco sales (including the use or sale of smokeless tobacco products and electronic nicotine delivery systems) are prohibited in University facilities or on any other property controlled by the University including state-owned, leased, or rented vehicles. Smoking or tobacco use is prohibited within twenty (20) feet of any entrance, exit or operable window of University facilities or of any other property controlled by the University.
Exceptions for instructional, research, educational, cultural, ceremonial and/or artistic purposes must be approved in advance by the MSUM Director of Public Safety or designee prior to its actual use. Such use should be preceded by reasonable advance notice to the public.
Enforcement of this policy will depend upon the cooperation of all faculty, staff and students, not only to comply with this policy, but also to encourage others to comply with the policy. In the case of a violation, the person will be informed of the Smoking and Tobacco Use/Sale Policy. If the person continues to violate the policy, the aggrieved party should contact MSUM Public Safety who will notify the MSUM Office of Student Conduct & Resolution if the violator is a student and the MSUM Human Resources Office if the violator is a University employee.
