Clatsop Community College is establishing a smoke and tobacco-free environment to promote the health, well-being, and safety of our employees, students, and visitors. As of September 17, 2018 smoking and the use of tobacco, electronic and vape products are prohibited in all areas of campus, including parking lots and structures, as wells as, in leased spaces.
Tobacco-Free Campus Policy 7.030 prohibits the use of cigarettes, cigars, pipes, electronic smoking devices such as vape pens, and smokeless tobacco products and nicotine delivery systems, including but not limited to chewing tobacco products. "Tobacco Product" does not include any cessation product approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration for use in treating nicotine or tobacco dependence.
It may be difficult for people who smoke or use tobacco to adjust to the smoke and tobacco-free environment and this concern is appreciated. As a campus, we support employees and students taking measures to curb cravings and offer support of efforts to help smokers remain smoke-free while on campus. Also, the following smoking and tobacco cessation resources and services are available to everyone who may want to quit and need assistance in doing so.

The success of this policy depends upon the thoughtfulness, consideration, and cooperation of every member of the College community. Thank you for working with the college as we make this positive change and together we can make our college a healthier place to work and learn.
Below are maps of campus areas where the community may find receptacles on the perimeter of college grounds to smoke on public property and dispose of any waste. Also, the maps point out locations across our campuses where coping kits are located to help curb cravings while on campus.
