Dear Members of the Campus Community:
I am pleased to remind you that effective July 1, 2012, the use of all tobacco products is now strictly prohibited on the College of Staten Island campus pursuant to The City University of New York’s Revised Tobacco Policy. CSI now joins over 420 colleges and universities across the country that have already enacted smoke-free or tobacco-free policies.
With its emphasis on respect for others and the environment, CUNY’s revised policy has received great support at the College from faculty, staff, and students. It is therefore incumbent upon all of us to take an active role in respectfully communicating the tobacco-free policy to our friends, colleagues, and visitors. A wealth of information concerning this initiative, including tobacco cessation resources, can be found on CSI’s Tobacco-Free and the University’s Healthy CUNY Websites.
On behalf of all of the College’s constituents, I thank you for your continued support and cooperation in this matter.
Tomás D. Morales, PhD
