South Florida State College (SFSC) is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for its employees, students, and visitors.  In light of extensive research findings that the use of tobacco products poses significant health hazards, it is the intent of the SFSC District Board of Trustees to establish a tobacco-free environment.

Consequently, the use, distribution, or sale of tobacco or any object or device intended to simulate that use is prohibited in all indoor and exterior areas of each campus, center, and other property under the control of the college.

College employees, students, visitors, contractors, and all others are expected to comply with this policy and the Florida Indoor Clean Air Act at all times.

The college president is authorized to develop administrative procedures as necessary to implement this policy, including provisions for notification, signage, exceptions, disciplinary consequences, complaint procedures, and enforcement.
