A tobacco free campus will welcome students for Thomas More College’s 2014-2015 school year.
The tobacco-free policy will take effect campus-wide on June 1 and will apply to all areas of campus at all times, including evening classes and sporting events.
A task force is in the process of drafting the final policy and smoking cessation programs are being developed. Educational programs will provide students, staff and faculty the opportunity to prepare for the policy and get the support they need to stop using tobacco. Dates for these classes will be listed on the TMC website once they are scheduled.
“Thomas More College is excited to join the growing number of colleges and universities that have taken this important step in providing a healthy environment for the students, faculty, staff and friends of the institution. We recognize the significance of this decision for some people and are going to take a compassionate approach focused on health and wellbeing,” said President David A. Armstrong.
