In May 2009, the University announced initiatives for our second century. One of those initiatives involved creating “A Healthier CU in Century II,” which was designed to spotlight the importance of health and wellness. That fall, Student Government passed a resolution calling for a smoke-free campus. That legislation was endorsed by the Faculty Senate with a recommendation that Cameron become tobacco-free. In May 2010, the Tobacco-Free Campus Policy was presented to the university’s governing board and approved effective August 1, 2011. In 2014, in accordance with an executive order signed by the Governor, the policy was amended to include vaping devices and e-cigarettes.
Cameron’s Tobacco-Free Campus Policy bans the use, sale or distribution of tobacco products, vaping devices, and electronic cigarettes on campus.
