Tobacco-Free Campus

Compliance and Reporting

Compliance with the SXU Tobacco-Free Campus Policy is the shared responsibility of all SXU staff, students and faculty members. The success of this policy depends upon the courtesy, respect and cooperation of users and non-users of tobacco products. The only way to ensure a tobacco-free environment is for everyone to be actively involved with enforcement.

Approaching a Tobacco User

Faculty, staff and students who see individuals smoking on University grounds may respectfully inform these individuals of the University policy prohibiting tobacco use anywhere on University grounds.

"Excuse me, I want to let you know that SXU is a tobacco-free campus and that _______ is not permitted on campus grounds."

Be sure to use the SMOKE approach:

If the person does not comply with your request, or you do not feel comfortable approaching them, please report the violation using the steps below.


There are several options for reporting a violation of our Tobacco-Free Campus Policy:

Tobacco-Free Noncompliance Reporting Form

Please use our form to report a hot spot of tobacco use on campus anonymously; or you may report a specific individual who is using tobacco, but to do so, you must identify yourself.
