ICC Adopts Smoke Free/Tobacco Free State Law July 1

Illinois state law requires all college campuses to be completely smoke free and tobacco free beginning July 1, and Illinois Central College has revised its current policy to comply with the law.

ICC’s Board of Trustees recently passed a smoke free/tobacco free policy prohibiting the carrying, usage, burning, inhaling, or exhaling of tobacco or related products on college grounds. The policy is in line with state law, which prohibits the usage on campus of tobacco products such as cigarettes, cigars, pipes, cigarillos, smokeless tobacco, chew, snuff, herbs, hookah-smoked products, cannabis (Including medical marijuana), and all forms of e-cigarettes or personal vaporizers.

Students and employees in violation of the law are subject to a College Regulations Violation Notice ($25 fine) and/or other disciplinary action as deemed appropriate by the ICC administration. Visitors and members of the public in violation of the policy may be required to leave the campus.
