Compliance and Enforcement

OVERVIEW

WVU is seeking voluntary compliance for the tobacco- and smoke-free campus rule. However, the University also has established several methods of enforcement as permitted by law and in accordance with University policy for students, faculty, staff, vendors and visitors who violate BOG Finance and Administration Rule 5.6 – Tobacco- and Smoke-Free Campus.

Enforcement will be fair and consistent, and non-compliance will be addressed in accordance with existing or forthcoming rules, policies and procedures. For example:

  • Students will be subject to Student Conduct proceedings and sanctions as outlined in the Student Conduct Code for each campus.
  • Visitors who do not comply with the rule will be asked to leave campus, which if ignored, may result in additional sanctions.
  • Employees of vendors or contractors will be reported to their employer for appropriate remedial action.
