Tobacco and vaping-free campus policies protect the health and safety of students, faculty, staff, and visitors by eliminating secondhand smoke on campus. Everyone will breathe easier, and this will assure equal access for individuals most vulnerable to the effects of secondhand smoke exposure, such as those with asthma and allergies. Additionally, by adopting a 100% tobacco and vaping-free policy, Cal Maritime will:
  • Promote clean air, a healthy environment, and healthy behavior choices
  • Save money and staff time spent cleaning cigarette litter by eliminating butts and other tobacco waste on campus
  • Prepare students for tobacco and vaping-free work environments 
  • Prevent students from initiating smoking
  • Encourage tobacco users to quit or decrease use
  • Support those who have already quit using tobacco
