KVCC to Go Smoke-Free


Kalamazoo Valley Community College will go smoke-free next year. It has approved a campus-wide ban on tobacco products effective January 1.

After that date, the only place students will be allowed to smoke at KVCC is in their cars. The college says a committee of “students, faculty and staff” recommended the changes to its tobacco policy.

The ban includes so-called e-cigarettes. Those don’t contain tobacco leaves and don’t burn, but do emit nicotine vapor.
