Clemson University is a tobacco-free campus as of Jan. 1, 2016. The new policy was approved by the University’s administrative council, based on input from a task force comprised of faculty, staff, undergraduate and graduate students.
All forms of tobacco and smoke-related products will be prohibited under the policy. Along with cigarettes, the ban includes chewing tobacco, smokeless tobacco and electronic cigarettes, which have gained popularity as a tobacco alternative.
The policy applies to all university faculty, staff, students and campus visitors and will be in place for all Clemson campuses, as well as university-owned and leased facilities.
Clemson joins more than 1,600 colleges and universities that have tobacco-free policies.
