SUNY Cortland Becomes Tobacco Free

 SUNY Cortland Becomes Tobacco Free

01/02/2013 

SUNY Cortland is now a tobacco-free campus.

No cigarettes. No cigars. No chewing tobacco.

The new policy means less secondhand smoke, fewer unexpected pools of tobacco drool and a stronger claim to being one of the healthiest campuses in the nation.

SUNY Cortland officials are aware that, for some, this change will be difficult. To help the campus community manage this transition, SUNY Cortland recently launched a website to provide information and explanations.

The site outlines the new policy, provides information on the dangers of tobacco, suggests ways to ask people to stop using tobacco and offers resources for people who would like to quit.

Creating a tobacco-free campus requires education and cooperation. We encourage all members of the campus community to work together toward a healthier campus environment.
