Hoverboards on Campus
Numerous reports of hoverboards igniting fires during battery recharging and normal operation have been reported resulting in a Consumer Product Safety Commission investigation.
Therefore, possession of hoverboards is prohibited on the Monmouth College campus and its related properties until proper safety standards can be developed and implemented by manufacturers.
Disciplinary action for the violation of the policy by students can include a $200 fine and confiscation of the hoverboard. Disciplinary action for the violation of this policy by employees can include disciplinary warning to dismissal from employment.
