Texas Wesleyan’s ongoing commitment to encourage and support healthy lifestyles resulted in the adoption of a 100 percent tobacco-free, smoke-free campus policy on Aug. 20, 2014, with the support of student government, faculty and staff.

There is no safe tobacco product. Therefore, the following products are prohibited on the Texas Wesleyan campus, Campus Map, at all times:

  • cigarettes
  • cigars
  • pipes
  • smokeless tobacco
  • electronic cigarettes
  • other tobacco products

Violating the tobacco-free policy will result in a $200 fine for smoking in a building or a $75 fine for all other tobacco use violations.
