Clear Passages

In an effort to bolster St. Francis College’s commitment to the health of its students, faculty, staff and administrators, St. Francis is proud to feature the tobacco-free campus “Clear Passages” policy.

Clear Passages follows on the passage of an important New York City law that affects the health of millions who work and play in the city. As of May 23, 2011, the city's 1,700 parks, 14 miles of public beaches and pedestrian plazas are all smoke-free. City Councilwoman Gale Brewer, who proposed the legislation, was a special guest at the College where she spoke about the law and emphasized the importance of focusing on public health and reducing exposure to secondhand smoke.

St. Francis College is a long-time supporter of the Great American Smokeout and other measures to increase awareness on the dangers of tobacco use. Clear Passages helps promote wellness, responsible citizenship and a commitment to the environment. The policy also aims to move smokers away from the building entrances and surrounding areas in a Franciscan manner — emphasizing education, support and respect while relying on cooperation and peer encouragement across campus.
