Smoking and Tobacco Policy

Purpose

In accordance with laws governing smoking and tobacco use, The Culinary Institute of America's Smoking and Tobacco Policy outlines the approved use of tobacco and electronic smoking products and devices, as a student on any U.S. domestic campus. The Smoking and Tobacco Policy at the CIA Singapore would follow the policy of Temasek Polytechnic. The adherence to and monitoring of the Smoking and Tobacco Policy is a collective responsibility of the entire campus community.

Policy Statement

The Culinary Institute of America's Smoking and Tobacco Policy outlines the approved use of tobacco and electronic smoking products in order to comply with the law, protect the desires of both smokers and non-smokers, and keep in the tradition of a wellness-minded community.

The usage of tobacco products and electronic cigarettes as defined under this policy are prohibited in all indoor areas, including individual residence hall rooms and common areas. The CIA strictly prohibits the sale of tobacco products and/or any alternative on any U.S. domestic campus.

Violations of the CIA Smoking and Tobacco Policy may result in warnings, fines, and/or other disciplinary sanctions. This policy applies to all students, faculty, staff, contractors, visitors, and other individuals who are permanently or temporarily part of the CIA campus community.

The CIA reserves the right to modify the Smoking and Tobacco Policy.

In addition, permitted smoking locations may be relocated at the discretion of the administration.

Procedures

Use of tobacco products and electronic cigarettes is prohibited in all indoor areas, including individual residence hall rooms and common areas.

The use of tobacco products and electronic cigarettes by anyone who studies at, works at, or visits a CIA campus is only permitted within the designated areas or structures on campus.

To help keep the campus clean, smokers must use the ash urns provided in the designated areas and refrain from disposing of cigarette butts on the ground or the floor. Additionally, when using tobacco products that require an individual to eject saliva, an appropriate container must be used to act as a spittoon.

For information specific to your campus, including, but not limited to, enforcement, appeals, and designated smoking locations, see the Policy on Smoking and Tobacco on the CIA Main Menu Policies and Procedures page.
