Policies and Enforcement

“Since 2015, IRSC has been the recipient of the American Legacy Tobacco Prevention Grant. The goal of this grant was to explore the possibility of creating a tobacco free environment on all IRSC Campuses. A Tobacco Prevention Task Force was established to explore Campus attitudes about tobacco use. You have probably noticed many awareness programs over the past two years as well as the implementation of the IRSC Tobacco Free Website. Employee and student focus groups, surveys, and meetings with student clubs and organizations have been held in order to consider the impact of tobacco use on the overall health and well-being of our College Community. In addition, all of our efforts have been supported by the Florida Department of Health and Tobacco Free Florida including access to free cessation programs for individuals who wish to quit using tobacco.

On February 28, 2017, the Indian River State College Board of Trustees approved a policy change making IRSC a tobacco free and smoke free Campus. Over the next few weeks we will transition our campuses for the formal implementation of the policy on August 1, 2017. Under the Tobacco Free and Smoke Free Campus Policy, the IRSC District Board of Trustees prohibits smoking and the use of smokeless tobacco products in all facilities and areas owned and/or leased by the College. This policy covers all members of the ‘College Community’ which include all employees, students, guests, and members of the public.”
