Let’s be Clear: 100% Tobacco-Free Campus
As part of our continued commitment to enhancing our employee's quality of life and the environment on campus, the Harvard Longwood Campus is pleased to announce that it will be a 100% tobacco-free community as of March 16, 2009. Please see our campus map and smoking policy for additional details.
The Harvard Longwood Campus will be offering free smoking and tobacco cessation programs to assist in this transition. Participants can choose between a one-time hypnosis workshop and a five-session class that meets once a week. Classes are open to family members, household members, and/or significant others of employees of the Harvard Longwood community who smoke or use tobacco products to quit. These courses will be offered at the Harvard Longwood Campus. To sign up, or to obtain more information, please call 617-432-5704.
Please consult with your physician before the program begins, as your physician is the person best qualified to evaluate your health and help you develop your own personalized plan. Your plan may include smoking and tobacco cessation medications.
Benefit Resources to Quit Smoking:
Other Resources to Quit Smoking (not affiliated with Harvard):
Harvard Medical School (HMS), Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HSDM) and Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) recognize that tobacco products are dangerous to one's health and that involuntary smoking is a cause of disease, including lung cancer, in healthy nonsmokers. The simple separation of smokers and nonsmokers within the same air space may reduce, but does not eliminate, the exposure of nonsmokers to environmental tobacco smoke. This applies to all smoking products, i.e., cigarettes, cigars, and pipes. This policy has been developed to protect all persons on campus from tobacco products, the exposure to environmental tobacco smoke and to ensure a safe working environment.
Smoking and the use of tobacco products are prohibited in all facilities and areas of the entire workplace with no exceptions. Smoking and the use of tobacco products are not permitted anywhere in any workplaces controlled, operated or occupied by Harvard Medical School (HMS), Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HSDM) and Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH). This includes, but is not limited to, all indoor and outdoor areas and properties. Indoor areas and properties include, but are not limited to, all common work areas, elevators, hallways, University owned or leased vehicles, garages, restrooms, cafeterias or dining areas, employee lounges, conference and meeting rooms. Outdoor areas include, but are not limited to, parking lots, grounds, rooftops, plazas, courtyards, entrance ways and exit ways. This policy applies to all employees, faculty and staff, consultants, contractors and visitors.
Please see Section 2.8C of the Harvard University Personnel Manual for compliance procedures.
Complaints regarding the enforcement of the policy are handled through the local human resource office and in accordance with procedures established in each school or department. If you have questions or concerns, please contact your School’s HR office. To report a smoker or tobacco user on the Harvard Longwood Campus, please contact your School’s security office:
- HMS/HSDM Security: 617-432-1379
- HSPH Security: 617-432-1040
