President Janet Cunningham announced Northwestern would become tobacco-free effective July 1, 2012. Northwestern Oklahoma State University (NWOSU) became a tobacco-free campus following an Executive Order issued by the Governor of the State of Oklahoma.
The new policy prohibits the use of all tobacco products on all school-owned property 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The ban on tobacco use is part of Northwestern’s efforts to become a more healthy campus. The Northwestern tobacco-control program consists of prevention, cessation and policy.
Northwestern Oklahoma State University is working with the Major and Woods County Tobacco Free Coalition on implementing the tobacco-free campuses.
Northwestern Oklahoma State University is committed to providing its students, employees, and visitors a safe and healthy environment.
Thank you for making Northwestern a Tobacco-Free Community.
