Howard Community College Goes Smoke- and Tobacco-Free

June
2011

In response to a recent campus-wide survey, in which 78.5% of students and 87.7% of staff were found to be in support of instituting a smoke-free policy on campus, Howard Community College (HCC) has become a smoke-free and tobacco-free campus. This policy--effective as of May 31, 2011--prohibits smoking and the use of tobacco products on all HCC-owned, leased, and controlled properties (including parking lots and garages, inside vehicles parked on campus, and at all HCC-sponsored events). Violators will be issued a $50 citation by campus security, and may be subject to additional fines imposed by Howard County.
