CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - The University of Central Arkansas’ Board of Trustees has banned the use of electronic cigarettes on the university’s campus and in university-owned vehicles.

The Log Cabin Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1f9FYXw ) that the board voted unanimously Friday to update its policy that bans the use of any tobacco products to include the electronic cigarettes - which emit a water vapor containing nicotine.

The new policy was recommended by a committee formed last fall under UCA Student Health Clinic medical director Dr. Randy Pastor. The committee’s letter to UCA President Tom Courtway says there is a “large concern” about unknown effects from the nicotine vapors given off by electronic cigarettes.
