Walsh University Undergraduate Catalog 2013-2014
Up one level
All Walsh University buildings are smoke-free environments. Exceptions are made for the residence area of La Mennais Hall (Brothers’ residence). Additionally, Walsh University has implemented a policy regarding smoking in accordance with Ohio Revised Code Chapter 3794.
In view of the requirements of this legislation, and our desire to promote the health and well-being of students, visitors, faculty and staff, the University policy provides a working environment that is free from tobacco smoke. Smoking is not permitted in, or within 20 feet of, Walsh University buildings, shelters and indoor athletic facilities. Smoking is also not permitted in University vehicles.
The policy applies to all staff and students throughout University premises. It also applies to visitors, contractors and sub-contractors while on University premises.
Smoking is not permitted near entrances to any University buildings. Smoking receptacles have been removed from these entrance areas. Please do not throw cigarette butts on the ground near entrances. Designated smoking areas have been provided in certain areas with effective ventilation. In addition, smoking receptacles will be located in these areas. While smoking is permitted outdoors, we are asking that preferential consideration be given to non-smokers whenever it is clear they are exposed to involuntary smoke.
Appropriate signage, as required by the new law, has been added to all non-smoking areas including all University buildings, athletic facilities, and vehicles. In addition to complying with the new legislation, it is hoped that these efforts will have the following results: everyone will know where smoking is permitted and non-smokers will know that they can, with few exceptions, avoid contact with second-hand smoke if they so choose. Your cooperation is critical to making this effort a success.
