The institution’s smoke-free policy:

California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB) is committed to creating a safe, healthy and productive environment for its students, faculty, staff and visitors. The Surgeon General has concluded that there is no risk-free level of exposure to secondhand tobacco smoke. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has found secondhand tobacco smoke to be a risk to public health and has classified secondhand smoke as a group 'A' carcinogen, the most dangerous class of carcinogens. Furthermore, the California Air Resources Board has categorized secondhand smoke as a toxic air contaminant. Tobacco smoke is hazardous to smokers and non-smokers. Thus in order to provide faculty, staff, students, guests and the public with a campus environment that supports the principle of one’s individual freedom to learn, teach, work, think and take part in their intellectual endeavors in a fulfilling, rewarding, safe and healthy environment, this policy is effective September 1st, 2017 systemwide. The purpose of this policy is to promote a healthy educational and work environment for all members of the CSUSB community. In order to support individuals who currently use tobacco and seek to quit, this policy will create a supportive environment through a combination of education, outreach and smoking cessation programs. Research shows the likelihood a person will be able to quit smoking is enhanced when the work environment has eliminated or curtailed the ability to smoke. For many smokers, the restrictive environment provides the required impetus to quit.

Tobacco use and smoking are prohibited on all CSUSB property and in all indoor and outdoor spaces owned, leased, licensed, or otherwise controlled by CSUSB. Tobacco use and smoking are prohibited in all vehicles owned by CSUSB as well as privately owned vehicles at any event or activity on campus property including CSUSB parking structures.
