SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The University of Utah soon will be a tobacco-free institution.
KSL-TV reports the mandate, effective beginning in July, will prohibit smoking and the use of any tobacco products on campus grounds at any time.
A release from the university Monday says the tobacco-free effort is part of the university’s commitment “to creating a healthier campus and healthier Utah for our students, faculty, staff, patients and visitors.”
The rule, approved last May, says if a person continues to “egregiously” break the rule, it will be treated like other campus rule violations, and they might be referred to the university police or dean of students’ office.
