Tobacco-Free Institution

OTC Tobacco-Free Policy

OTC is a Tobacco-Free institution and is committed to providing its students, employees, and visitors with a safe and healthy environment. No consumption of tobacco or tobacco products is allowed on any college property or in any college facility; this includes all buildings, grounds, sidewalks and streets within the campus proper. The institution displays notices of the tobacco-free policy at all college locations.

National Center for Tobacco Policy

OTC became one of the first higher education institutions in the US to make its campuses tobacco-free in 2003. OTC established the Center of Excellence for Tobacco-Free Campus Policy in 2004, to share best practices with other organizations. In 2010 the Center of Excellence for Tobacco-Free Campus Policy was moved from under OTC and reorganized as the National Center for Tobacco Policy, a nonprofit organization that helps organizations develop, implement and sustain tobacco-free or smoke-free open space policies. Information about the NCTP is available at www.tobaccofreenow.org
