Smoke and Tobacco Free Campus

 

Smoke and Tobacco Free Campus

Drew University is a smoke, tobacco and nicotine free campus.

The Drew University Smoke, Tobacco and Nicotine Free Campus Policy is effective January 1, 2021. Drew prohibits smoking, use of any tobacco and/or nicotine products, and the use of any electronic delivery system (e.g., vaping). This policy applies to all indoor and outdoor Drew spaces including, but not limited to, all University academic and administrative buildings, residence halls, and other buildings, sidewalks, parking lots, recreational areas, and athletic venues, as well as in other outdoor areas owned, operated, leased, or controlled by the University, in all owned and leased University vehicles, and at Drew-sponsored off-campus activities and events.

The purpose of the Drew University Smoke, Tobacco and Nicotine Free Campus Policy is to promote a culture of wellness, and to protect the public health and welfare of the Drew community. Drew recognizes and supports the findings of the Surgeon General of the United States that tobacco use in any form, active and/or passive, is a significant health hazard. Drew further acknowledges that environmental tobacco smoke has been classified as a Group 1 carcinogen, and that any exposure to tobacco and/or nicotine smoke is hazardous.
