Smoking on Campus
On July 1, 2015, in compliance with the State of Illinois’ Smoke-Free Campus Act and other applicable state laws, Illinois State University became smoke-free/tobacco-free campus. This new law prohibits smoking and the use of tobacco on campus property. Campus property includes buildings, grounds , parking lots, and vehicles that are owned or operated by state-supported institutions of higher education. The establishment of this smoke- and tobacco-free environment provides a cleaner, healthier environment to live, learn, teach, work, and play.
If you notice someone smoking, you may request that the individual cease smoking and inform them of the policy. If you would like to file a complaint, contact ISU Police at (309) 438-8631. Those who violate the Smoke-Free Campus Act may be subject to fines or other disciplinary action. Discrimination and/or retaliation in any manner against a person for making a complaint or furnishing information related to a violation of this act is strictly prohibited.
