One mission of the Health Science Center is to promote public health. For this reason, all campus buildings and grounds of the University are smoke-free; smoking is not permitted outside buildings or anywhere inside buildings including private offices. University no smoking policies include electronic cigarettes, e-cigs, and similar products. No tobacco products will be sold on the campus either by the Health Science Center or outside vendors. By the nature of business of the Health Science Center, it is the responsibility of each individual employee to ensure that a healthy environment is provided by example and deed. Employee cooperation and support of this policy is essential to its success. The Handbook of Operating Procedures addreses these matters as well.
