Number of smoke-free and tobacco-free campuses increases substantially over the last five years

New findings from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Nonsmokers' Rights Foundation (ANRF) show that the number of smoke-free and tobacco-free college campuses nearly doubled between 2012 and 2015. In 2012, 774 college and university campuses had smoke-free policies, and of those policies, 562 of them included tobacco as well. In 2017, the number of smoke-free campuses increased to at least 2,082. In addition, 84% of those campuses were tobacco-free, 80% specifically prohibited e-cigarettes, and 41% prohibited hookah (or water pipe) use.
