Standard of conduct for smoking
A guide for CNC students, employees and visitors

There are nine designated smoking areas at CNC. Seven of the areas are equipped with shelters that indicate smoking is permitted in the area. We appreciate you respecting the rights of others and only smoking in the designated areas. Please smoke only in designated areas.

• Smoking is not allowed in any CNC vehicle. • As a definition, “smoking” includes holding a lit cigarette or any smoking consumable. • No tobacco products are sold on any CNC campus. • No tobacco products are advertised on any CNC campus or in any CNC publication. It is expected that all campus users will be considerate, and voluntarily support this clean air initiative. The CNC program is intended to be self-enforcing and respectful to non-smokers and smokers. However, there are standard responses to breaches of college standards of conduct that will be applied if necessary. Exceptions to these standards may be granted for traditional and ceremonial events at approved times and places by

consulting with Facilities Services or the Regional Director.
