CLEMSON — Clemson University has established a task force comprised of students, faculty and staff to make its campus tobacco free within two years. The task force will research the impact of a tobacco-free campus, define the specifics of a tobacco-free campus policy and plan its implementation.

Clemson’s current policy prohibits smoking within any university-owned or leased buildings, including residence halls. The new policy would prohibit tobacco in all areas of the campus and other property owned by the university, both indoors and out.

More than 770 colleges or universities across the nation are smoke-free, and more than 560 of those are completely tobacco-free.

“Becoming a tobacco-free campus could have many benefits for students, faculty and staff,” said George Clay, executive director of student health services and chairman of the committee. “There is data to show that going tobacco free could reduce costs of health care and health insurance for employees. It is also in line with Clemson’s 2020 goal ‘to maintain an environment that is healthy, safe and attractive.’”

The task force will divide into sub-groups to address four main topics: facilities and signage, communications and marketing, tobacco treatment and addiction management, and compliance/policy and procedures.
