Tobacco Free Colleges


Why are tobacco-free policies important? Young adults have the highest rates of tobacco use. To counter this, students are banding together to change the acceptance of tobacco use on college campuses across NC. The NC Tobacco-Free Colleges Initiative is funded by the NC Department of Public Health to prevent tobacco use and promote cessation among college students. Regional coordinators partner with campuses in coalition building, policy advocacy and grassroots activities to create change. To date, over half of all community colleges and a growing number of other universities and colleges are 100% tobacco-free, making North Carolina a national leader in policy adoption.
