This is the year of our transition.

Smoke Free Hampshire

Why Smoke Free Hampshire

At Hampshire, we strive to create a vibrant community grounded in collaborative and thoughtful engagement with each other and the world, and committed to an ongoing process of learning and growth. Our model of social justice includes an emphasis on holistic wellness—wellness of the mind, spirit, emotions, and body—which guides us in working together towards a more sustainable future.

Policy Information

As we continue the work of building a wellness-oriented campus culture, we are undertaking an initiative to be a smoke-free campus by Fall 2019. This includes e-cigarettes, vaping, and any other smoke or vapor-producing products. To allow sufficient time to adjust to this change, the academic year 2018-2019 will be a transition year where smoking will be permitted in Designated Smoking Areas (DSAs) only.

How You Can Help

The transition to a smoke free campus will be a community effort. We are asking for your help in promoting a healthy campus life and supporting others in this transition. This might include:

  • Engaging in conversations about the benefits and challenges of going smoke-free
  • Assisting others to connect with smoking cessation resources (see link to on- and off-campus resources above the photo at the top of this page)
  • Becoming involved in educational and supportive efforts on campus around this initiative

Updates on the transition process: Coming soon!
