In order to provide all members of its community with a healthy environment, the University of Saint Francis has adopted the following tobacco-free policy:

  1. There will be no tobacco use in any USF facility or on USF property at any time
  2. There will be no tobacco use in any USF vehicle at any time
  3. The university will continue its policy of not selling tobacco products.

This includes the burning of any type of cigar, cigarette, pipe, or any other smoking equipment, whether filled with tobacco or any other material. The use of smokeless (i.e. e-cigarettes and e- vapors) as well as chewing tobacco are also prohibited.

Enforcement of this policy is the responsibility of all members of the university community. This policy relies on the thoughtfulness, consideration and cooperation of smokers and non-smokers for its success, and it is expected that smokers will voluntarily comply with its spirit and intent.

Members of the University of Saint Francis community are reminded that trespassing and/or smoking on or near the railroad tracks is considered a federal offense; violators are subject to arrest and/or fines.
