Change is in the air at Sacramento City College (SCC) as we embark on healthier environmental standards for smoking in Fall 2014. Based on feedback from SCC’s participatory governance groups and an extensive survey of students and employees on their opinions about smoking on campus a new smoking standard has been created. In addition to the current Los Rios Community College District (LRCCD) policy of no smoking within 30 feet of building entrances, outdoor air intakes, and operable windows, smoking is only allowed on campus in Designated Smoking Areas (DSAs).

New SCC Environmental Standard for Smoking
How will our new environmental standard for smoking be enforced? The answer is community policing. This campus is our community and our responsibility.
Smokers: Please familiarize yourself with the new smoking areas and refrain from smoking in non-designated areas.
Non‐smokers: Please be courteous when reminding smokers to use the Designated Smoking Areas.
And all of us will need to help campus visitors understand that smoking is permissible only in these designated areas.
