UW-Eau Claire finalizes new smoking policy

Posted:

Eau Claire (WQOW) - UW-Eau Claire has finalized a new smoking policy.  In December of 2010, a recommendation was made by the university senate to issue a campus-wide tobacco ban. 

The student senate disagreed and recommended designated smoking areas.  Chancellor Levin-Stankevich sided with the student senate and created a task force to suggest smoking and non-smoking areas.

Smoking is now prohibited on campus except on city-owned streets and 18 locations on campus. 

Those locations include:

1.The loading docks at: Brewer/Campus School/Zorn Arena, Davies Center, Hilltop, Haas Fine Arts (west loading dock), Human Sciences & Services, Maintenance/Central Stores, McIntyre Library, McPhee, and Phillips Hall.

2. Hibbard – north side near Custodial shop;

3. Nursing – south side near base of ramp;

4. The shelters east of Towers Hall, north of Horan Hall, south of Sutherland Hall, and south of Putnam Hall.

5. Chancellors Hall - west side near dumpsters;

6. Sutherland Hall - north side firepit.

The university is calling for voluntary compliance.  Unlike UW-Stout, there will be no fine at this time if someone smokes in a non-designated area.
