ST. GEORGE -- Officials at Dixie State University are taking steps to ban tobacco use on campus.
KSTU-TV reports that the move would ban smoking, chewing tobacco and e-cigarettes.
The university's trustees passed the measure this week, asking officials to approve it come fall. The ban would go into effect in 2014.
Some students came up with the idea in 2010. They say it will make the campus healthier.
Some smokers say the measure is a step too far in dictating personal choices.
The Utah Clean Air Act currently bans smoking inside the campus buildings. The new ban would prohibit smoking in common areas, walkways and parking lots. Smokers could still light up in their cars.
Privately-owned Brigham Young University is the only other Utah university with such a tobacco ban.
