Vol State is taking the next step: we are going completely tobacco and vape-free in 2016

After January 1, 2016, Volunteer State Community College will prohibit the use of tobacco on any campus property for all students, faculty, staff, contractors and visitors. The use of tobacco and vaping (e-cigarette) products will be prohibited in college buildings and on college grounds, including parking areas, walkways and buildings.  This does include any vehicles located on campus property on campus locations in Gallatin, Springfield and Livingston.  

Prohibited products include:

• Cigarettes
• Cigars
• Tobacco Chew or Snuff
• Clove Cigarettes
• Electronic Cigarettes (Vaping)
• And all other products that are smokable substances and/or use tobacco

The tobacco-vape-free policy is a part of Vol State’s commitment to creating a healthy and sustainable environment for all members of our campus community and is designed to be positive and health directed.
