Days away from a Healthier Campus!

June 28, 2012 11:21 am

As you are aware, smoking and the use of all tobacco products will be strictly prohibited on the College of Staten Island campus beginning July 1, 2012, as per the college’s Implementation Plan of CUNY’s Revised Tobacco Policy.

These policies have been implemented out of respect for others and the environment.

A Tobacco-Free CSI will:

–Help keep our campus beautiful by reducing a known source of toxic litter

–Protect our students, faculty, staff, and visitors of all ages from the unwelcomed, involuntary and harmful exposure to second-hand smoke, third-hand smoke, and tobacco product refuse

–Create a supportive environment for those who are trying to become free of tobacco and nicotine use

–Establish a healthier environment for everyone

The College’s Tobacco-Free website contains a wealth of resources for quitting tobacco use, as does the University’s Healthy CUNY website.

Students who wish assistance may visit the CSI Health and Wellness Center located in the Campus Center for additional assistance.

Faculty and staff that are interested in quitting are encouraged to contact the CUNY Work/Life Program online or (800) 833-8707.

FAQ #2

What does tobacco-free mean?

The policy prohibits the use of tobacco on all grounds and facilities under CUNY’s jurisdiction — indoor and outdoor– as well as tobacco industry promotions and marketing on campus properties, and tobacco industry sponsorship of athletic events and athletes. The Board’s resolution updates and supersedes the University’s previous policy, which prohibited smoking inside all facilities, including vehicles operated by the University.
