NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A new tobacco and vape policy takes effect Monday on the Stephen F. Austin State University campus in Nacogdoches.
The revised policy, which bans the use of all tobacco and vape products, was approved by the SFA Board of Regents in January. The SFA Student Government Association and SFA Faculty Senate first approved a resolution to establish SFA as a tobacco-free campus in October 2015.
The policy states:
Enforcement of the policy will rely on education, awareness and a spirit of cooperation, according to the university's website. "Individuals noticing violations of the policy should strive to be non-confrontational and respectful to tobacco users when communicating this policy."
