Tobacco-Free College

Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for its employees, students and visitors. In light of the Iowa Legislature's recent passage of The Smoke-Free Air Act (H.F. 2212) and findings of the U.S. Surgeon General that use of tobacco is a contributing factor to significant health hazards; it is the intent of the DMACC Board to establish a tobacco-free environment.

Since July 1, 2008, the use of tobacco products is not allowed on any college property or in any college facility; this includes all buildings, grounds, sidewalks, parking lots, vehicles, and streets within the campus proper. DMACC will display notice of its tobacco-free policy at all college locations.
