Baruch College Implements CUNY-Wide Revised Tobacco-Free Policy

Clean Space ImageBaruch College is launching its Clean Space campaign to promote positive health behaviors and a tobacco-free campus. The campaign is part of a CUNY-wide initiative to provide a healthy and safe environment for students, employees, and visitors.

At its meeting on January  2011, the Board of Trustees of The City University of New York approved an expanded tobacco policy, making CUNY the largest tobacco-free university system in the United States. All CUNY schools are implementing the revised tobacco policy as part of the Tobacco-Free CUNY initiative that offers information and resources online.

The tobacco-free policy applies to every person who comes to a CUNY campus, including visitors, faculty, staff, volunteers, students, contractors, and service representatives.
