As of January 1, 2019, Colorado State University is now smoke-free, vape-free and tobacco-free. The move was in response to the executive order signed by Governor Hickenlooper on November 2, 2018, which prohibits smoking and vaping in all buildings and all grounds owned or leased by the state of Colorado. The intention of the executive order was to make Colorado a leader in addressing the negative impact of tobacco products, vaping products and e-cigarettes on public health. CSU’s new policy will reduce exposure to secondhand smoke and vape on campus, and educate on the harmful health effects and financial burden of smoking, vaping and tobacco use, creating a healthier community. The university has made quit resources available for students, faculty and staff to support those looking to quit.
