New Smoking Policy Takes Effect Soon

New Smoking Policy Takes Effect Soon

Beginning Aug. 29, Brookhaven College will have a new smoking policy that eliminates the smoking areas within the campus buildings.

The Extended President's Cabinet, in consultation with the Police Department, decided to create a smoke-free campus environment, and this new policy applies to all employees, students and visitors.

All Brookhaven College campus buildings and grounds are non-smoking areas with the exceptions of six parking lots designated for smokers.

The only areas where smoking is permitted are the following parking lots:

How will the Smoking Policy be enforced? Anyone noticing an individual who is smoking in a non-smoking area may inform the subject(s) of the smoke-free policy and refer them to one of the designated parking lots, or contact the College Police at 972-860-4290.

When an individual who is smoking in a non-smoking area is observed by a college police officer, the officer shall inform the smoker of the policy and request him/her to relocate to one the designated parking lots.

Should an individual continue to violate the smoking policy after being advised by a police officer that he/she is in violation, the following actions may occur:

  1. In the case of a student, a report shall be written with said violation and the matter referred to the Vice President of Student Affairs.
  2. In the case of an employee, a report will be written and the matter referred to his/her supervisor.
  3. In the case of a visitor, the Police Officer will escort the violator off campus and a criminal trespass warning may be issued.

Should you have any questions about the Smoking Policy, please contact the Brookhaven College Police Department by visiting them in Bldg. B, Room B200 or calling 972-860-4290.
