Nicholls State University Tobacco Policy

Tobacco Policy Statement

Concern for indoor air quality is a trend-taking place across the nation. In 1989, the Surgeon General renewed a health education campaign against smoking, and Congress passed legislation restriction smoking on domestic airline flights and began consideration of a bill that further limits advertising for smoking products. Studies have revealed that nonsmokers who breathe secondhand smoke face similar health risks as smokers. As a result, a significant number of corporations and academic institutions now require a completely smoke-free environment.

Nicholls State University has a vested interest in creating a healthful and productive atmosphere for its faculty, staff, and students. Providing a generally smoke-free environment is a step in establishing activities that promote a long and health life.

Effective January 1, 2011, Nicholls State University is a tobacco free campus.  The use of any tobacco product in any form (smoking or chewing)  is prohibited effective January 1, 2011.
