Tobacco-Free Campus

On January 1, 2015, CWI became a Tobacco-Free Campus, as directed by Board Policy 4350.  This policy is intended to positively promote a healthy learning environment for all who come to the College's campuses.  This means that the use of all tobacco products, electronic and vapor cigarettes, or the sale, distribution, or advertisement of same, are prohibited in College buildings or on College premises, including events on College premises, and in College-owned, rented, or leased vehicles.  This policy applies to any person on CWI owned or leased property, including all CWI employees, students, vendors, contractors and visitors.  For more information including: Cessation Opportunities, Respectful Communication, and FAQ's.
