Upon the Morton College Board of Trustees’ approval of the Smoking and Medical Marijuana Institutional Procedure at last night’s Board meeting (8/27/2014), the Morton College campus became completely smoke-free.

A smoke-free campus means:

  • Smoking on Morton College premises in a public place or place of employment and within College vehicles is prohibited.
  • No person shall smoke on Morton College premises.
  • No person may smoke in any privately owned vehicles on Campus.
  • The use of smokeless tobacco products, chewing tobacco and electronic cigarettes on Morton College premises, in public places and places of employment regardless of where located is also prohibited.
This Policy applies to all students, employees (faculty, staff, administrators, and professional staff), visitors, vendors, and contractors; and applies to all Morton College premises.

All employees and students are responsible for being familiar and complying with the requirements of these regulations

Morton College institutes this policy to comply with the Smoke Free Illinois Act (410 ILCS 82 et seq, the “Act”) and to ensure that all Morton College facilities and properties are tobacco-free in an effort to provide the faculty, staff, students and visitors with a healthy, respectful working and learning environment.

Any questions regarding the smoke-free campus should be directed to the Morton College Police Department.
