3. What is a tobacco-free campus policy?
Every campus should officially adopt a tobacco-free policy that is comprehensive and based on best practice to: protect staff, students and
visitors from exposure to SHS; remove all forms of tobacco advertising, promotion sponsorship and sale; and end any financial or material
connectionsss with the tobacco industry or related third parties.
The sample policy we recommend includes: smokefree environments, such as all indoor areas, crowded outdoor areas, walkways,
residence halls or dormitories, campus vehicles etc; tobacco-free environments that are free of all forms of tobacco advertising, promotion,
sponsorship and sale; and educational materials for students and staff on how to quit smoking. A condition of employment or student
membership should be to respect and comply with the policy.
A tobacco-free policy can also be part of a broader policy to improve the overall health of students and staff.
