Indiana State University considers vaping banFebruary 18, 2020
By The Associated Press
TERRE HAUTE — Indiana State University’s trustees will consider a proposal to add electronic cigarettes to the western Indiana school’s ban on tobacco-related products.
The Terre Haute campus is largely tobacco free under a policy that took effect in 2009, although the school has some designated outdoor smoking areas and it allows people to smoke in private vehicles.
But a draft policy that would ban vaping will be presented to ISU's trustees this week. A final policy recommendation will be submitted for May's trustees' meeting. If it’s adopted, the vaping ban would be implemented on July 1, the Tribune-Star reported.
The school’s trustees could suggest changes prior to adoption of any final policy.
The current draft policy would prohibit electronic smoking devices, hookah, smoking and tobacco product use on property owned, operated or leased by the university.
Their use would still be permitted in “the enclosed cabin” of privately owned vehicles, while designated campus smoking areas “will be gradually phased out in a manner determined by the administration,” the draft policy states. No timeline is included for that phaseout.
