Smoking Policy

In accordance with CUNY policy and effective Fall 2012, smoking is prohibited inside all facilities or vehicles owned, leased, or operated by Medgar Evers College. Smoking includes the inhaling, exhaling and carrying of any lighted cigarettes, cigars, or pipes. There will be no sale of cigarettes, cigars, or pipe tobacco at any facility, location or vending machine owned, leased, or operated by Medgar Evers College or its contractors. This policy applies to all tobacco and tobacco products including chew tobacco and e-cigarettes.

To affect adherence, members of the Medgar Evers College community must be willing to directly and politely inform those unaware of the policy, and remind those who disregard it. If this approach and effort is unsuccessful, the individual in viol ation of this policy may be brought to the attention of the dean, director, senior staff member or other person in charge for further discussion and progressive counseling.

The New York State minimum drinking age (21 years) is observed at all campus functions. Proof of age is required to consume alcoholic beverages and no individual appearing to be under the influence of alcohol will be served.

The unlawful possession, use or distribution of drugs is prohibited on the campus. Violators will be subject to penalties ranging from reprimand and warning for a first infraction, to separation from the College for a subsequent offense.

Legal sanctions against students alleged to be in violation of Public Law 101-226 will be determined according to Article 15 Section 3 of the CUNY Board of Trustees By-Laws.
