BCTC to go Tobacco Free in August
LEXINGTON, Ky. (Friday, May 17, 2013) - Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC) will join the growing list of U.S. colleges and universities to adopt a tobacco-free campus policy, effective August 12, 2013.
On August 15, 2009, the BCTC Tobacco Policy was revised to create a tobacco-restricted college that encompassed all the BCTC campus sites, including all BCTC owned, operated, or leased properties. The new tobacco-free campus policy will extend to prohibit the use of all tobacco or e-tobacco products on any and all BCTC campuses.
BCTC strives to continue to provide a safe and healthy environment for students, faculty, staff and visitors. The new policy underlines this commitment and reminds campus goers about the high standard that BCTC sets for its students, faculty and staff.
