Foothill's Smoke Free Campus Policy
In order to provide a safe learning and working environment for students and
employees, smoking is prohibited in all indoor and outdoor campus locations, with
the exception of designated tables. At Foothill College, smoking is prohibited
in district vehicles.
"No Smoking" signs are conspicuously posted at building entrances and in
employee lounges, restrooms, locker rooms, dressing areas, cafeterias, lunchrooms,
and stadium and sports facilities. In addition, designated parking lot areas for
smoking will be clearly marked.
This policy relies on the consideration and cooperation of smokers and non-smokers.
It is the responsibility of all members of the district to observe and follow the
guidelines. This policy shall be communicated to all employees annually and published
in the colleges' Schedule of Classes, handbooks, Web sites, and other appropriate
locations. (Santa Clara County Ordinance No. 625.4; City of Cupertino Ordinance No.
