Wilkes University Hoverboard Guidelines

To:  All Wilkes University Faculty, Staff & Students

In light of the safety concerns raised by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on hoverboards (i.e. electronic skateboards) and the number of recent hoverboard-related fires being investigated by the CPSC, Wilkes University is taking immediate steps to protect our campus community and residents.  Effective immediately and until further notice, the possession, use, and storage of hoverboards and electric self-balancing scooters is prohibited on ALL University property (including University shuttle’s and vehicles).

The statement from the CPSC Chairman can be found here.  For additional information, contact the Office of Risk & Compliance Management at Justin.kraynack@wilkes.edu or 570-408-4554. Thank you.
