(Tobacco Free Contest Winning Slogan Submitted by Theresa Snyder)
Mt. Hood Community College is Tobacco-Free
The Mt. Hood Community College District Board of Education and the College are committed to providing a healthy, safe educational environment for all employees and students to work and learn and where students have every chance to succeed.
On Jan. 2, 2010, all College locations became completely tobacco free.
MHCC joined Portland Community College and Oregon Coast Community College as the first three Oregon community colleges to decide to prohibit tobacco use on campus. Smoking is not allowed on any community college campus in Multnomah, Washington or Lincoln Counties. In Southwest Washington, both Clark College and Lower Columbia College are tobacco-free. Colleges throughout Oregon are reviewing their campus smoking policies.
We invite you to use the resources offered here and join us in creating a better place to learn!
