Tobacco Free MCLA

MCLA is committed to promoting a healthy and safe environment for everyone on campus. This policy is intended to reduce the health risks related to second-hand and other adverse effects of smoke and other tobacco use for the campus community, providing a healthy learning and working environment. MCLA recognizes the medical evidence that indicates that smoking and other tobacco use is a serious health hazard, and that this health hazard extends to non-smokers subjected to second-hand and other effects of smoke and other tobacco use.
