Healthy Campus / Tobacco
Show Your Support for a Healthier Campus Environment; Take The Tobacco Free Pledge to Honor Florida State University's decision to go Tobacco FREE!
For the health and wellness of the campus community, effective January 1, 2014, the FSU campus will be entirely tobacco-free.
As a top-tier research university, FSU sets the example for other organizations through its policies and practices, including those associated with the health and safety of students, faculty, staff and visitors.
Hundreds of colleges and universities across the country have adopted tobacco-free policies in keeping with a growing movement that spans both private and public sector areas to restrict exposure to toxic and human cancer-causing substances.
Numerous research studies have clearly shown that second-hand smoke impacts people’s health, including those suffering from asthma and other respiratory conditions. Everyone has the right to work and live in environments that are free of risks and effects associated with tobacco use.
It is important that everyone participate in the establishment and maintenance of our tobacco-free campus. This shared enforcement responsibility will ensure a healthy environment for all of us, as well as reduce the hazards, accidental fires, and costs associated with the disposal of discarded tobacco products.
