Campus Smoking Policy
The university passed a policy on May 28, 2013 to maintain a tobacco free campus. In an effort to promote the health and well-being of the entire campus community, the policy prohibits the use of tobacco products on campus. With this policy, Oregon Tech joins other public institutions, private universities, and community colleges throughout Oregon in instituting or considering such policies.
- Effective Fall Term 2013, all properties associated with Oregon Tech including the Klamath Falls campus and the Wilsonville campus, became Tobacco-Free. This means that use of any type of tobacco is prohibited on all property maintained by Oregon Tech.
- This policy applies to students, staff, faculty, administrators, visitors, and any other individual associated with Oregon Tech.
- Distribution and/or promotion of tobacco products on campus will be prohibited.
- Smoking cessation assistance will be made available for all faculty, staff and students of Oregon Tech.
A tobacco free awareness program and implementation plan has been established to inform employees, students, and visitors of this change. For more information please read OIT-30-035 or call the Oregon Quit Line at 1-800-QUIT NOW (784-8669) www.quitnow.net/oregon/.
