On April 15, 2013, the Board of Trustees approved a revision of Board Policy 3570 Smoking Policy
which states that smoking is not permitted on any district-owned property.
In addition, the Campus Executive Committee approved a revision of Administrative Regulation 3570 Smoking Policy which states, among other things that:
- Smoking is not allowed on campus or in any GCC owned or leased facilities or in any district owned or leased vehicles. This includes all district owned parking lots, whether inside or outside of a vehicle.
- This also applies to electronic cigarettes or other imitation cigarette devices.
Violations to the policy are subject to a $100 fine.
An information campaign has started at GCC to inform students, staff and the public in general of this change in policy. Currently, the College Police is educating and enforcing this policy on all District campuses.
This policy does not apply to City owned land. Information on city restrictions on smoking can be found at the following link:
