Smoke Free and Tobacco Free Community | Webster University

Smoke Free and Tobacco Free Community

Webster University is committed to providing a healthy environment for all of its students, employees and campus visitors. While we respect the rights of those who use tobacco and other nicotine products, it has been determined that tobacco use is detrimental to the health of users and of others nearby. Therefore, all campus buildings are designated smoke free and tobacco free. This includes cigarettes, pipes, cigars, e-cigarettes, chewing tobacco and other products that may include tobacco. This applies to private offices as well as common areas. Smoking and tobacco use is permitted outside and 30 feet away from entrances to University buildings. Public Safety Officers and others within the University community are charged with reminding smokers and users of other tobacco products to distance themselves from smoking or using tobacco products inside University buildings or within 30 feet of building entrances.

Webster University Student Life Policies have been written to help guide the behavior of students as members of the University community. Webster strives to be a center of academic excellence. We make every effort to ensure:

  1. The opportunity for students to learn and inquire freely;
  2. The protection of intellectual freedom and the rights of professors to teach;
  3. The advancement of knowledge through scholarly pursuits and relevant dialogue.

The University community is by nature pluralistic and diverse. Those who elect to participate in the Webster University community accept the responsibility of sharing in the effort to achieve the University's mission as an institution of higher learning.

Each person is expected to respect the objectives of the University and the views expressed within the community. In so doing, all members of the University community, and their guests, are expected to conduct themselves in an appropriate and civil manner at all times. These behavioral expectations include behavior both on- and off-campus as defined herein.

Additional policies and practices or changes may evolve and the Student Handbook and Calendar may be amended, modified, or suspended at any time. Written notice of such changes will be distributed as soon as possible.
