Danville Area Community College is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for its employees, students, and visitors. In light of the findings of the US Surgeon General that exposure to secondhand tobacco smoke and use of tobacco are significant health hazards, it is the intent of the Board to establish a tobacco-free environment, effective August 1, 2012. Consequently, use, distribution, or sale of tobacco, including any smoking device, faux-smoking devices (for example e-cigarettes or vapors), or carrying of any lighted smoking instrument, in college buildings or on college premises without exception, at events on college premises, or in college-owned, rented or leased vehicles, is prohibited.
For the purpose of this policy, “tobacco” is defined to include any lighted or unlighted cigarette, cigar, pipe, bidi, clove cigarette, hookah, e-cigarettes, vapors, and any other smoking products; and smokeless or spit tobacco, also known as dip, chew, snuff or snus, in any form.
All college employees, students, visitors, and contractors are required to comply with this policy, which shall remain in force at all times. The College has determined the following fair and uniform fines for violations of these rules and shall provide adequate means for the enforcement and collection of such fines.
