The fourth goal of South Dakota State University’s strategic plan is to be a growing, high-performing and healthy university. A specific strategy of this goal is to create a culture of personal, professional, and organizational well-being throughout the University. SD State is committed to providing a healthy and safe campus environment for its students, faculty, staff and visitors. The smoking and tobacco-free campus policy is an extension of employee and student wellness initiatives designed to create a healthier and productive campus community. Recognizing the health, safety, and comfort benefits of smoke-free air and tobacco-free spaces, SD State became a tobacco-free campus on January 1, 2018.
The use of tobacco products (cigarettes, e-cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco, smokeless tobacco, vapor-based products, etc.) is not permitted on any University property, including, all campus grounds inside and out, parking areas, vehicles, and student housing. The policy applies to university students, faculty, staff, as well as visitors and vendors to all university property, regardless of location.
Thank you for respecting campus and our policy!
