The CUNY Board of Trustees has approved an expanded tobacco policy that will make CUNY the largest smoke-free public university system in the United States.

The policy prohibits the use of tobacco, including chew tobacco and e-cigarettes on all grounds and facilities under CUNY’s jurisdiction—indoor and outdoor. It will also prohibit tobacco industry promotions, tobacco marketing on campus properties, and tobacco industry sponsorship of athletic events and athletes.

The Board’s resolution replaces the University’s previous policy, which prohibited smoking inside all facilities. It will be implemented University-wide no later than September 4, 2012.
