Eastern Illinois University is dedicated to providing a healthy, comfortable, and productive work environment for employees and students. The right of non-tobacco users to protect their health and comfort shall take precedence over another person's right to use tobacco.

Tobacco-Free Campus Policy

In accordance with the Illinois Smoke Free Campus Act, the use of all tobacco products is prohibited on all campus property, both indoors and outdoors, including buildings, grounds, parking lots, and vehicles that are owned, leased, occupied, operated, or otherwise controlled by Eastern Illinois University. The advertising, sale, or free sampling of tobacco products is also prohibited on campus property.

Littering the remains of tobacco products or any other related waste product on campus property is further prohibited by the Illinois Litter Control Act.

This policy applies to any individual on campus property, including -- but not limited to -- students, faculty, staff, other employees, contractors, subcontractors, volunteers, visitors, and members of the public. It is applicable at all times.

Some of these provisions are updates to the existing language of Internal Governing Policy No. 171; these updates will officially go into effect on July 1, 2015.
