Tobacco-Free Campus Coming June 1, 2017

In the interest of providing a healthful and productive learning environment for all faculty, staff, and students, Bladen Community College will become a tobacco-free campus on JUNE 1, 2017. Smoking and the use of tobacco products will not be allowed within any college-owned building, college vehicle, or college property.

Smoking is defined as the use of smoke-producing tobacco products such as cigarettes, cigars, pipes, hookahs, smokeless or spit tobacco or snuff, which includes smoking, chewing, dipping tobacco products. This also applies to any other smoke/vapor producing products. E-cigarette use or vaping is defined by the use of electronic smoking devices or electronic nicotine delivery systems. FDA approved cessation aids, such as nicotine patches and gum, are not included in this category.

Those employees and students who smoke and would like to take the opportunity to quit are encouraged to participate in stop-smoking programs. Information on tobacco cessation assistance will be available on the Bladen Community College campus.
