Tobacco-Free Campus

Welcome to our Tobacco-Free Campus

On July 1, 2014 Central Maine Community College adopted a tobacco-free campus policy.

The use of tobacco products or any object or device intended to simulate that use, including e-cigarettes, is strictly prohibited on campus. The sale, distribution or advertisement of tobacco products is prohibited.

This policy applies to faculty, staff, students, contractors, vendors and visitors. The use of tobacco and all smoking products is not permitted on any college property, including but not limited to buildings, campus grounds, parking areas, campus walkways, recreational facilities, and college-owned vehicles.

Tobacco use includes the possession of any lighted tobacco products, or the use of any type of smokeless tobacco, including but not limited to chew, snuff, electronic cigarettes, and all other nicotine delivery devices that are non-FDA approved as cessation products.
