Effective August 1, 2011, all MCC properties and grounds became tobacco-free. This means smoking and all other tobacco use has been prohibited inside and outside all college buildings and grounds. This includes all common areas, parking lots, building entrances, etc. In other words, if you are anywhere on an MCC property, you may not use tobacco products.
The health and safety of students, visitors, faculty and staff is a top priority for Metropolitan Community College. Tobacco related disease is the nation’s leading preventable cause of premature death and disability and hazardous to the health of smokers and non-smokers alike.
Communication to students, employees and others affiliated with the college has been ongoing while the policy was being composed and finalized. For those wanting to kick the habit all together, information regarding cessation programs can be found on the Resources tab above.
