LR TO GO TOBACCO-FREE ON ALL CAMPUSES

Lenoir-Rhyne recently announced that it will become tobacco- and smoke-free across all campuses. The policy will roll out in spring 2019 with a soft launch, with full implementation of the policy starting June 1, 2019. 

Lenoir-Rhyne recently announced that it will become tobacco- and smoke-free across all campuses. The policy will roll out in spring 2019 with a soft launch, with full implementation of the policy starting June 1, 2019. 

 

The use of cigarettes, e-cigarettes, cigars, pipes, hookah, smokeless tobacco, all nicotine delivery devices (excluding Nicotine Replacement Therapy) and all other tobacco products will be prohibited across all University-owned or leased properties, facilities, athletic fields and stadiums, parking lots, and vehicles. Upon implementation, LR will join the nearly 2,000 tobacco-free campuses in the United States and more than 80 other colleges and universities in North and South Carolina to implement such a policy. 

“The health of our faculty, staff, and students is a top priority for Lenoir-Rhyne, and this is an important step toward providing a safe and clean learning and working environment,” said University President Dr. Fred Whitt. 

The new tobacco-free policy will allow nonsmokers to avoid exposure to secondhand smoke. Simultaneously, campuses will offer support for individuals who are current tobacco users and those who may be working toward quitting. More information about University-supported resources and programs will be forthcoming. 

“We encourage the entire Lenoir-Rhyne community to champion this policy by helping to communicate, educate, and provide support to students and their peers and colleagues,” Whitt said.
