Tobacco-Free MCC

Tobacco-Free logo

MCC is tobacco-free. It's a bold new culture shift -- one that makes the health and well-being of the college community a priority. It's a shift that says good health is essential to a successful education. Voluntary compliance began at the start of the Fall 2014 semester. Full implementation of the policy will coincide with the start of the Spring 2015 semester in January.

All tobacco products in use must be disposed of prior to entering any college property or exiting a personal vehicle. MCC requires college community members to respect private property bordering all MCC locations by refraining from trespassing for purposes of tobacco product consumption. The sale, free distribution, related advertising or sponsorship of tobacco-related products is also prohibited on MCC property.

Tobacco use is prohibited on all college-owned and leased property, both indoors and outdoors. This includes:

  • All buildings on the Brighton and Damon campuses, Applied Technologies Center and Public Safety Training Center.
  • Off-site and leased locations such as the Economic Development & Innovative Workforce Services facility.
  • Outside property owned and leased by the college including open land areas, woods, fields, patios, parking lots, sidewalks, roads, loading docks and building entrances.
  • All vehicles owned and leased by MCC or its affiliated organizations.
  • College-sponsored events at all locations.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Dolores Pasto-Ziobro at: dpastoziobro@monroecc.edu.
