TOBACCO-FREE CAMPUS

The Louisburg College Board of Trustees approved the implementation of a tobacco-free campus beginning with the fall 2008 academic term.

Louisburg College places a high priority on providing a living and learning environment that is safe and healthy. This includes creating an environment that promotes individual student health and provides the resources necessary for students to make healthy choices. Louisburg College respects the rights of all persons to use a legal product and will continue to uphold these rights. However, persons wishing to use tobacco products must do so off-campus.

The policy supersedes all prior tobacco use policies by the College, and it applies to all Louisburg College trustees, administrators, students, faculty, staff, visitors, vendors and contractors. The policy also states that the sale and/or distribution of tobacco products and tobacco advertisements are prohibited on campus.

Examples of tobacco products prohibited by the policy include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Cigarettes
  • Cigars
  • Pipes and Pipe Tobacco
  • Smokeless Tobacco (including dips)
  • Snuff
  • Chewing Tobacco

For students, faculty and staff members that seek to use this policy as an opportunity to quit the use of tobacco products, the College will provide smoking cessation resources to those seeking assistance.
