University Policy 706, Alcoholic Beverages

University Policy 707, Smoking and Use of Tobacco Products on University Property

  August 2, 2013

Status: Revised

The revised policy clarifies that “e-cigarettes” and other similar nicotine vapor inhalers are included in the definition of “smoking,” and such inhalers are therefore subject to the provisions of the policy applicable to other lighted tobacco products.    

University Policy 205, Preparation and Sale of Instructional Materials

  July 30, 2013

Status: Revised

These revisions emphasize that sale of course packs directly to students is not permitted, while adding clarifying language and referring directly to the conflict of interest and copyright policies rather than restating policy information found in existing policies. The revisions also add language requesting that faculty submit a copy of all course-packs to the campus store, even if they print with off-campus shops.  This provides a convenience for our students by letting them opt to make all their purchases at once – on campus – and allows students to take full advantage of bookstore programs like the tax-free pre-pack service offered in the summer.
