Tobacco-Use On Campus

CWI’s Tobacco-Use policy is intended to be positive and promote a healthy learning environment. In the spirit of cooperation, CWI encourages employees, students, and guests to be non-confrontational and respectful of all members of our campus community when communicating CWI policies. In return, tobacco users are asked to adhere to the new policy and also be respectful of former and non-tobacco users. Enforcement will be achieved through education, awareness, and cooperation, which makes it important to remain courteous and respectful when addressing the Tobacco-Use policy.
