OTC Tobacco-Free Policy (4.02[r])

Ozarks Technical Community College is committed to providing its students, employees, and visitors with a safe and healthy environment. In view of this commitment, the college is a Tobacco-Free institution. No consumption of tobacco will be allowed on any college property or in any college facility. The institution displays notices of the tobacco-free policy at all college locations.

OTC’s tobacco-free policy was implemented in 2003. Some of the reasons we chose to adopt this policy are as follows:

  • Presence of underage students
  • Tobacco litter desecrating the campus
  • Exposure to second-hand smoke (SHS) at building entrances/exits
  • Desire to ensure clean air for all who come to the college
