Tobacco Use Policy

Sampson Community College is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment in which people can learn and work. As an expression of this commitment, the use of any tobacco product (including electronic cigarettes) is prohibited in campus buildings and on all parts of the campus outside of designated smoking areas, in all college-owned or leased vehicles, and at all classes taught by College personnel without regard to location. The sale or distribution of these products is also prohibited.

To foster an understanding of this policy, faculty, staff, students, and visitors who violate this policy will receive reminders of the policy. Faculty, staff or students with repeat offenses may receive sanctions as provided in the Student Code of Conduct or the Staff and Faculty Handbook. Visitors may be asked to leave the campus.
