“Smoking” means inhaling, exhaling, burning, carrying, or possessing any lighted tobacco product, including, cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco, and any other lighted combustible plant material.
“Tobacco-free” means the prohibition on the use of tobacco derived or containing products, including but not limited to cigarettes, cigars, cigarillos, pipes, hookah-smoked products, oral tobacco products and all electronic cigarettes (e-cigs or e-cigarettes), personal vaporizers (PVs) or electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS).
As of July 1, 2010 LDCC became tobacco free and therefore, set forth the following smoking/tobacco guidelines as indicated in the 2015-2016 Student Handbook in General Policies, Standards, and Guidelines:
All buildings of Louisiana Delta Community College are smoke-free and tobacco-free. Smoking and or use of tobacco products by employees, students, and visitors are prohibited in buildings and on the college grounds.
The purpose of this policy is to provide a safe and amicable workplace for all employees as well as to preserve and improve the health, comfort and environment of students, employees and any persons occupying our campuses.
