Cell Phone Usage Policy

Cell phones, pagers, electronic devices, and their attending noise are distracting to both staff and students in classrooms, labs, offices, and libraries. These areas are also inappropriate sites for personal telephone conversations. In consideration of others and to minimize distractions, phones and pagers should be set to “silent” or “vibrate” inside campus buildings. Usage of cell phones and electronic communication devices is prohibited during all class/lab times. If an emergency situation is encountered, it should be approved in advance. Employees shall limit personal calls on business phones or cell phones during the work day. Violators will be subject to disciplinary action. Texting while driving on campus roadways is prohibited. Violators may be subject to fines and/or disciplinary action.
