Smoking and Tobacco Policy Enforcement
The enforcement of this policy will be initially educational, focused on 1) informing all members of the UC Santa Barbara community and campus visitors of this new policy, and 2) cessation resources. The success of this policy depends upon the thoughtfulness, consideration, and cooperation of smokers and non-smokers alike. The administration and UCSB Smoke-Free Campus Steering Committee will review these enforcement strategies after the policy takes effect and determine if further enforcement protocols are necessary. All suggestions can be referred to the UCSB Smoke-Free Campus Steering Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org

Retaliation against a person enforcing the campus policy will not be tolerated and should be reported to the appropriate campus contact noted above.
