We adopted to be tobacco free not only because we’re part of the SUNY system, but we are also joining over 1,800 institutions of higher education across the nation that have implemented similar health policies. 

The Tobacco Free policy is driven by respect for others and the environment and relies on the thoughtfulness, consideration, and cooperation of tobacco users and non-users for its success. The success of this policy will depend on the cooperation of all members of the Purchase College community, both to comply and encourage others to do so.
