Citadel campus is now tobacco-free

After months of education, preparation and counting down, The Citadel campus is now officially tobacco-free. The change comes after two years of planning and the creation of a new policy supporting the goal of providing a healthier learning and working environment. The new policy will enhance the campus culture of wellness.

The policy extends to all locations owned and operated by The Citadel including Johnson Hagood Stadium and its surrounding parking lots, Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park during Citadel events and The Citadel Beach Club. It applies to all students, faculty, staff, visitors, volunteers, contractors and vendors. The president of the college may permit limited exceptions to the policy and Citadel campus housing occupants are authorized to smoke on back porches, provided the porch is screened.

The Citadel’s Campus Alcohol and Drug Information Center (CADIC) is available for students and cadets who wish to stop the use of tobacco products. For employees, the college will provide tobacco cessation assistance through the Employee Assistance Program and the state health plan “Quit for Life” program.

The Citadel knows that the campus community will demonstrate consideration and cooperation as we work together to successfully implement this policy. Learn more about support programs and the benefits of becoming tobacco-free by visiting the school’s tobacco-free website. Correspondence and questions on the policy can be sent to the Director of CADIC, Kevin Modglin, at
