UMES Guidelines and Policy on Smoking
It is UMES’ goal to promote the good health and comfort of its employees. Maintenance of a smoke-free work environment can contribute toward the attainment of that goal. Therefore, smoking is not permitted in any UMES building or facility. Smoking is not permitted on UMES property except in designated areas around the campus perimeter. In addition, smoking is not permitted in any UMES shuttle bus or other UMES vehicle.
In compliance with Executive Order 01.01.1987.13, issued by the Governor of Maryland, and in accordance with the above USM Policy on Smoking at USM Institutions, it is the policy of UMES to provide a healthful working environment on the UMES campus. UMES has attempted to consider the needs and concerns of both smokers and non-smokers in the development of this policy which applies to all employees, students and visitors to the campus.
