The University of Missouri became a smoke-free campus on July 1, 2013. Previously smoking was permitted only at designated outdoor areas. Smoking is prohibited on the Columbia campus and all properties owned, operated, leased or controlled by MU.
Violation of the policy is defined as smoking any tobacco products, including e-cigarettes.
All MU employees and students will be informed of the University of Missouri Smoking Policy, and all students, visitors and employees are expected to comply with it.
Employees include everyone employed by the University of Missouri (faculty, staff, student and temporary). Any employee who violates the policy will be subject to corrective action under the Human Resources Policies and Procedures or other applicable university regulations or policies.
