Why Tobacco-Free

A tobacco-free environment provides the following benefits to the DMACC community and the people we serve:

  • Supports the State of Iowa's efforts to eliminate tobacco use in public settings.
  • Supports healthy life-style choices.
  • Eliminates second-hand smoke from around building entrances and air intake units.
  • Eliminates litter.
  • Prepares DMACC students to cope with future employment in tobacco-free environments.
  • Sets a positive example for high school students and young children who visit our campuses.
  • Reduces the risk of fire caused by smoking.
