Belmont University is dedicated to the health and well being of all of its students, faculty and staff. In an endeavor to provide the healthiest possible environment, a tobacco free campus policy will be introduced August 15, 2011.
A planning committee consisting of representatives from several campus constituencies (members listed below) was asked to develop a plan to implement the new tobacco free policy. The committee solicited perspectives and suggestions from current tobacco users, Human Resources/insurance and students. In addition, research was done to benchmark against other schools (more than 250) that have enacted a tobacco-free campus. The committee spent several weeks developing a plan that has been approved by senior leadership.
We ask that you review this content thoroughly. In addition, the Web site offers information on treatment options for those wishing to stop their tobacco use. It is our goal that this policy will further enhance the Belmont experience for everyone and improve the health of all our students, faculty and staff.
