Western Piedmont Community College has a responsibility to its students and employees to provide a safe and healthy environment. Research findings show that tobacco use in general, including smoking, breathing secondhand smoke, and smokeless tobacco constitutes a significant health hazard. Because smoking is a health and fire hazard, smoking and other tobacco use is prohibited on College property and in College vehicles. Western Piedmont Community College is a tobacco-free campus.

For the purposes of this policy, tobacco is defined as, but not limited to: cigarettes, cigars, cigarillos, pipes, and all smokeless tobacco products. Violations of this policy by faculty, staff or students will be handled in a manner consistent with the violation of other college policies.
