As the spring semester kicks into full gear, the Institute would like to remind everyone that Georgia Tech is now a tobacco-free campus, in accordance with the Tobacco- and Smoke-Free Campus Policy passed by the Board of Regents in March 2014.
This policy covers all forms of tobacco, including e-cigarettes. It applies to all students, staff, faculty, vendors, and visitors — while on Georgia Tech’s campus.
