Cleveland State University will be tobacco-free by September 2013, according to a policy approved today by the university's board of trustees.
The draft policy (read the full text in the document viewer below) developed by administrators bans anyone on campus from using tobacco, including smokeless tobacco, on university property. That ban will extend to parking lots and walkways.
Smoking will also be banned in all university vehicles and in personal vehicles when used to transport anyone on school-related business.
Exceptions include tobacco use for research, clinical or religious ceremonial purposes, with prior approval.
