Tobacco-Free Policy

ETSU Tobacco-Free Campus Policy

The full ETSU policy can be accessed via the ETSU Human Resources website

The policy reads:  "Effective August 11, 2008, ETSU is a Tobacco-Free Campus, with smoking and all other tobacco usage permitted only inside private vehicles.  This policy applies to all university buildings/ grounds; ETSU-affiliated off-campus locations and clinics; any buildings owned, leased or rented by ETSU in all other areas; and ETSU facilities located on the campus of the James H. Quillen Veterans Affairs Medical Center at Mountain Home.  Tobacco use is also prohibited in all state vehicles.  This tobacco-free policy is in effect 24 hours a day year-round.  For purposes of this policy, "tobacco use" means, but is not limited to, the personal use of any tobacco product, whether intended to be lit or not, which shall include smoking tobacco or other substances that are lit and smoked, as well as the use of an electronic cigarette or any other device intended to simulate smoking and the use of smokeless tobacco, including snuff; chewing tobacco; smokeless pouches; any form of loose-leaf, smokeless tobacco; and the use of unlit cigarettes, cigars, and pipe tobacco.

Because ETSU cares about your health.

The university promotes a healthy, sanitary environment free from tobacco smoke and tobacco-related debris.  The ETSU community acknowledges that long-term health hazards may accrue to people  who  use  tobacco  products  or  who  are  subjected  to  second-hand  smoke.   The  failure  to address  the  use  of  tobacco  products  on  campus  would  constitute  a  violation  of  the  Americans with Disabilities Act, the Vocational Rehabilitation Act and Tennessee law.
