The institution’s smoke-free policy:
Health risks associated with the use of tobacco products are well documented. Since 1990 when the college first implemented the policy related to smoking on campus, additional studies have also indicated that exposure to environmental tobacco smoke (second hand smoke) is a significant risk for the non-smoker. This policy statement is intended to update the current smoking policy to prohibit smoking of any kind and other uses of tobacco products on campus, at extension campuses, at all indoor and outdoor events, college sponsored programs and activities off campus, in personally owned vehicles parked on campus, and all vehicles and equipment owned leased or operated by the College and its affiliate organizations. Use of tobacco products other than smoking products and other smoking apparatus such as pipes, hookas and ecigarettes, etc. is also prohibited.
