WKCTC goes tobacco-free

Staff report

West Kentucky Community & Technical College is now a tobacco-free institution. The policy went into effect Saturday.

The college began its tobacco-free plans last fall with the development of a committee that consisted of faculty, staff and students who conducted extensive research to create a comprehensive tobacco-free proposal for the campus. WKCTC faculty and staff voted to pass the proposal in October 2014.

College President Barbara Veazey said the new policy is a positive step for the college.

"It's important for us to set an example of how we can best live our lives healthy, professionally for the entire well-being of our community."

When looking at Kentucky's health numbers, Veazey said becoming tobacco-free is "absolutely the right thing to do for our students."

The tobacco-free policy includes all forms of tobacco, including, but not limited to, cigarettes, cigars, pipes, vaporizing devices, electronic cigarettes and smokeless tobacco products on any campus property.

More information about the college's tobacco-free can be found at westkentucky.kctcs.edu/About/TobaccoFreeCampus/FAQ.aspx.
