This policy serves to provide an Ohio University non-smoking policy based on continuing Executive Orders of the Governor of the state of Ohio.


In Spring, 1993, Governor George Voinovich issued an Executive Order (since re-issued) specifying that there shall be no smoking in state-owned buildings and vehicles. The Ohio University Board of Trustees adopted a no-smoking policy in support of the Governor's action at their April, 1993, meeting.

The Board of Trustees resolution states:

WHEREAS, the Environmental Protection Agency has issued a finding further documenting the harmful medical consequences of secondary tobacco smoke, and

WHEREAS, the Governor of the State of Ohio has issued an Executive Order banning smoking in all state owned buildings except prisons and university residence halls and apartments,

BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED, that Ohio University adopt a resolution eliminating smoking in all university owned buildings (except selected residence halls and apartments) and vehicles.


There are no procedures specified as part of this policy.


Proposed revisions of this policy should be reviewed by:

  1. Policy and Procedure Review Committee


There are no forms that are specific to this policy.
