Enforcement of this policy will depend upon the cooperation of all faculty, staff, and students not

promote a clean, safe, and healthy environment in which to work, study, and live. The University will
provide the campus community with training opportunities designed to assist and prepare students
and employees to help one another comply with the policy.
In the case of a violation, the person will be informed of the University Smoking and Tobacco Use
Policy. Should that person continue to violate the policy, the aggrieved party should contact the
appropriate office: for University employees, the person's immediate supervisor; for students, the
Judicial Office of Student Affairs; and for those not associated with the University, Campus Security.
To ease with the transition to a smoke-free campus, in Fall 2007 and Fall 2008, Quit and Win will be
made available to MSUM students and employees.
Additionally, to support MSUM students and employees who wish to reduce and/or quit using
tobacco products, a variety oftobacco cessation resources and services are available (see
