St. Cloud State is a tobacco-free campus. Our policy prohibits the use, sale and free distribution of smoking and smokeless tobacco products on university property. Tobacco use is allowed in private vehicles as long as respect for individuals and the environment is demonstrated.
Possession of tobacco products does not violate the policy.
Trained advocates, signage, news stories, print materials and other means of communication are informing the campus community and visitors about the policy. Send non-compliance concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The policy is an outgrowth of a March 2010 Minnesota State Universities and Colleges resolution that encouraged system schools to consult with students and employees about steps their institutions might take regarding tobacco use. Read the university’s Smoking Policy Review Task Force report (PDF).
