Smoke-Free Work Environment

Section 112

Smith College recognizes that using tobacco products is harmful to the health of tobacco users and that exposure to secondhand smoke poses a health risk to nonsmokers. This policy has been enacted to address these health concerns and to provide a smoke-free workplace for all members of the college community.

Smoking is prohibited in all college-owned student residences and all academic and administrative buildings. All smoking by faculty, staff, students, and visitors is limited to outdoor areas more than 20 feet from any academic, administrative, or residential building. Smoking is also prohibited in college-owned vehicles.

The college is committed to providing educational programs to assist its employees and students in making healthy lifestyle choices. Employees who are interested in smoking cessation programs may obtain information from the Office of Human Resources.

It is the responsibility of each member of the college community to comply with the provisions of the Smoking Policy. Individuals who have questions or concerns about the policy should contact the Office of Human Resources or the Office of Student Affairs. For the College's Smoking Policy, please visit
