getbox! Not seeing a widget? (More info) The initiative aims to limit exposure to secondhand smoke for the campus community - creating a healthy learning and working environment for everyone.

The policy, which includes the burning of tobacco or any other material in any type of smoking equipment,
encompasses all property owned and operated by BCC. 

BCC's decision to go smoke-free follows a trend occurring on college campuses nationwide. Nearly
half of the institutions in the Commonwealth have already enacted similar
policies - with many others following suit.

The college will offer assistance to those who wish to quit smoking through a smoking cessation
program in collaboration with Berkshire Health Systems.
