KGI is committed to protecting the health of the campus community from negative impacts related to other persons’ use of smoked and vaporized products. Therefore, KGI has adopted a smoke and vape-free policy that includes all workplaces, including open and closed offices, classrooms, and outside areas. This policy applies to students, faculty, staff, volunteers, and visitors.
Smoking: The term “Smoking” means inhaling, exhaling, burning or carrying any lighted or heated cigar, cigarette or pipe, including a hookah pipe, or any other lighted or heated tobacco, plant or other product, intended for inhalation, in any manner or in any form.
Vaping: The term “Smoking” also includes the use of an e-cigarette that creates a vapor, in any manner or in any form, or the use of any oral smoking device for the purpose of circumventing the prohibition of smoking in this policy.
Violations: Any person who repeatedly violates this policy be asked to leave the premises and/or may be removed from campus. Employees may be subject to corrective or disciplinary action and students may be subject to student conduct charges. Students who violate the policy more than once may be required to appear before the Student Conduct Committee.
The following persons and departments are responsible for ensuring that the KGI policy is communicated to employees, students, visitors and others in the KGI community: • Student Affairs staff regarding students
