Tobacco use costs the University System, affects the health and future of students, faculty and staff and compromises the beauty of the campus buildings and grounds.
Keene State College (KSC) supports the health goals of Healthy People 2020 to reduce tobacco use and initiation among youth and adults, and to positively influence our community by helping people to remain or become tobacco/smoke free. We are committed to providing a safe and healthy working and learning environment for the students, faculty, and staff.
KSC is an environment that honors everyone’s health by supporting smoke and tobacco free living. We recognizes that the implementation of a tobacco/smoke policy affects tobacco users/smokers at Keene State College. Prevention, education, and cessation initiatives are available to support the non-use of tobacco products/smoking among employees and students. Smoking/tobacco cessation resources are listed below.
