Smoking can be hazardous to health--for smokers and non-smokers alike. It can contribute to heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, emphysema, and several forms of cancer. The University of Baltimore has taken positive steps toward providing for all employees and students a smoke-free environment. Smoking is prohibited within all University vehicles, University buildings, and within 15 feet of the entrance to University buildings.
This no-smoking policy stresses compliance on the part of employees and students. While it is best to rely on common courtesy for colleagues and classmates to ensure the success of this policy, the University is prepared to enforce it with formal sanctions. Visitors who refuse to comply with this policy will be required to leave the University premises.
