As of April 2016, 1,483 colleges and universities in the United States have adopted 100% smoke-free policies. Of these, 1,137 are 100% tobacco-free. A growing number of these schools are also adopting or amending policies to prohibit the use of e-cigarettes.
In California, 54 public colleges and universities are 100% smoke or tobacco-free. Of these, 41 campuses are 100% smoke/tobacco-free including e-cigarettes.
As more colleges adopt smoke/tobacco-free policies, we are able to learn how they positively impact the health and well-being of the campus community and environment.
