无烟校园

In 2008, Brunswick Community College Faculty Senate recommended the creation of a tobacco-free campus in a formal request to the President. 现在, 经过七年的讨论, 研究, 建议, 公众意见和修订, Brunswick Community College is preparing to become a tobacco-free campus on 2017年7月1日. 在执行这项政策时, det365手机版官网 joins over 38 community colleges in North Carolina that are smoke-free, 无烟或两者兼而有之. 我们也加入Novant Health, Dosher Memorial Hospital as well as public school properties in prohibiting the use of tobacco products.

The adoption of this policy is an important step in addressing the serious health and environmental issues associated with tobacco use. 根据无烟校园.org:

  • 有480多个,000 deaths each year in the US caused by cigarette use and exposure to secondhand smoke.
  • More than 16 million Americans suffer from a disease caused by smoking.
  • Of the more than 172 toxic substances tobacco smoke contains, 3 are regulated outdoor air pollutants, 33种是有害的空气污染物, 47 are chemicals restricted as hazardous waste and 67 are known human or animal carcinogens.
  • Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable death in the country. Smoking kills more Americans than alcohol, 车祸, 艾滋病的原因, 火灾, 海洛因, 可卡因, 他杀和自杀 结合.

The new tobacco-free policy represents extensive due diligence by the Tobacco Us年龄 Committee. 委员会由教员组成, 工作人员, and administration with significant levels of constituent involvement from the campus. 这个委员会定期开会, holding discussions with our campus governance bodies, 主持公开论坛, 进行调查, and soliciting public comment on the draft policy via email. 除了, the Committee has been in regular 沟通 with local and national resources with respect to tobacco-free initiatives across the country in an effort to identify best practices, including smoking cessation programs.

We recognize that the successful implementation of this policy will take time. Policy compliance will include education, 沟通, and collaboration with campus constituencies. As has been the case on many other campuses, 同伴支持, 监察监督, and voluntary compliance will lead ultimately to behavioral and cultural change over time. Mutually respectful interaction among members of our community will be a key to success.

最重要的是, the College will support and assist those who wish to stop using tobacco by providing access to effective smoking cessation programs with free or discounted costs and ongoing, 长期支持. 要了解更多信息,请访问gqtcnm.sanmargup.com/tobacco-free.
