Along with our commitment to providing our students with a safe and healthy environment where they can learn and grow, we also share a commitment to providing our nearly 1000 employees to provide a workplace that is conducive to professional development and personal growth.

All Frostburg State University's property, including buildings, parking lots, sidewalks and pathways are all now smoke-free.

We appreciate your compliance with this policy as you are the mentors after whom our students model themselves.

Please be aware that employees will not be granted any additional time to leave campus should they need to smoke. For more information, please contact the Office of Human Resources at 301.687.4105.

As a Fit-Friendly Company, a designation received by the American Heart Association and maintained since 2009, we wish to offer opportunities to our employees to promote their health and wellness. Becoming smoke-free is the next step towards promoting worksite wellness.

We encourage all of our employees to consider becoming smoke-free themselves. As the Surgeon General states, it is never too late to quit smoking. Lee Ann Nightingale, our Employee Benefits Manager in our Office of Human Resources , has information on cessation support. We have FREE smoking cessation materials available to any employee that wishes to access them.
