Office of Student Conduct

Change in Oregon Nicotine Inhalant Law effective January 1, 2018

As we start a new calendar year and get ready for another term at Western Oregon University, we want to inform you of a recent change to one of Oregon's laws that may affect you.

With the passage of Senate Bill 754 (former House Bill 2024), which was signed into law by the governor in August 2017, Oregon has become the fifth state in the country to raise the age for possession and use of tobacco and inhalant delivery systems (vaping) to 21 years of age on college and university campuses.  This change took effect Jan. 1, 2018.

WOU is already a tobacco-free campus. This law also prohibits possession of tobacco and inhalant delivery systems while on campus by those who are under the age of 21.

As a public institution, it is our responsibility to recognize state laws as reflected in WOU's Code of Student Responsibility.



The mission of the office of Student Conduct is to help students take responsibility for their actions; provide a fair and impartial process for students; support the educational environment by promoting a safe learning community for all students, faculty and staff; and serve as a resource for the campus community.

It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
