The Kentucky State University Board of Regents on Friday approved a tobacco free campus policy that will take effect August 1, 2013.
The policy reads:
"Effective August 1, 2013, the use, distribution, carrying of any lighted smoking instrument or device, or sale of tobacco in university buildings, including dormitories and grounds, and at KSU events, as well as in private vehicles parked on university property, is prohibited."
The board also voted for a 2.95 percent tuition and mandatory fee increase.
Board members were also introduced to the finalist for KSU's Director of University Security and Safety Affairs, James Berry. He will begin his new duties on August 16, 2013.
