Wesleyan University becomes tobacco-, vape-free campus


September Johnson, Wesleyan University’s alcohol and other drug specialist, acknowledges that the college’s move to becoming a tobacco- and vape-free campus will be a big change for the community.

The policy went into effect on Jan. 1. Johnson said that there will be plenty of support measures in place to help.

“We, as a community, are here to support each other through this change,” Johnson said in a campus all-staff meeting on Nov. 29 where the policy change was announced.

No tobacco products will be allowed anywhere on campus. “Tobacco use continues to be a leading cause of preventable illness and death in the United States. Hazards of second-hand tobacco smoke are well known,” Johnson said in an email.

“Tobacco is the only product that, when used as intended, leads to serious illness and premature death. There is no safe form of tobacco or nicotine with the exception of nicotine replacement therapy,” Johnson said.
