SMOKE- AND TOBACCO-FREE COLLEGE CAMPUS

Creating a tobacco-free campus policy provides a timely opportunity for students and employees to lead tobacco-free lives. An essential step to going tobacco-free is to offer tobacco cessation resources to help people quit smoking and other forms of tobacco use. Over 70% of New Jersey adult smokers want to quit. Here are key steps your school can take to integrate tobacco cessation into your college's new smoke- or tobacco-free policy:

  • Engage with campus health personnel as part of your tobacco cessation program. It is likely that your campus health personnel currently offer some form of tobacco cessation resources. Your campus health personnel will help to ensure that your campus' tobacco cessation resources offer continuity and perhaps expand services to your community. If your college or university has a school of public health, they may also be able to contribute.


  • Make sure tobacco cessation has a prominent place in your new policy. Clearly communicated cessation messaging will signal to current tobacco users that they are not being ostracized, and instead are valued members of the campus community. This can help ease enforcement of a new policy as well.


  • Educating the campus community on tobacco cessation resources should be incorporated into orientation of new students and employees to ensure all campus members are aware of what cessation services are available. Providing ongoing cessation support to new members of the community is central to ensuring that the benefits of the new policy are maintained, and that the burden of enforcement does not fall solely on public safety. External tobacco control organizations can help your campus community quit tobacco.
