Smoking Policy

It is the policy of the College to achieve a smoke free environment in accordance with Public Health Law, Article 13E, Section 1399 paragraph 02a "Smoking shall not be permitted and no person shall smoke in any indoor area open to the public in all public and private schools including elementary and secondary schools, colleges, universities and other education and vocational institutions."

As we learn more about the harmful effects of involuntary smoking, the public interest in non-smoking rules grows. There has been an increasing amount of new legislation on tobacco products and their use. Furthermore, based upon the negative health effects of smokeless tobacco and on the recommendation of the American College Health Association, it is also the policy of Utica College to restrict the use of smokeless tobacco as defined in the policy.
