Last Revised: 3 Oct 2011
Refer Questions To: Office of the Vice President, Administration & Finance


This policy applies to faculty, teachers, staff, students, and guests in all offices and divisions of Gallaudet University.


Gallaudet University is dedicated to providing a healthy, comfortable, and productive work environment for faculty, teachers, staff, students, and guests. Reaching and maintaining this goal requires the understanding and patience of all members of the campus community.

Smoking on campus, including the use of electronic cigarettes, will only be permitted in designated smoking areas. Smoking is not permitted in any other campus location including University and Clerc Center buildings, in elevators or bathrooms, in any University vehicle, walking on campus, or at the entrance of any building. There are no smoking breaks. At all times the right of the non-smoker to protect his/her health and comfort takes precedence over another person's right to smoke.

Enforcement of this policy will depend on the cooperation of all faculty, teachers, staff, and students not only to comply with this policy but also to encourage others to comply with the policy in order to provide a healthy environment.

Repeat or intentional non-compliance by students with these provisions will be managed by Residence Life or for employees by their supervisor. When necessary, the University will institute disciplinary action against the offending individual, which may result in a range of sanctions, including but not limited to the following: students may receive a warning, disciplinary probation, or suspension; employees may receive a warning, suspension without pay, or dismissal.
