FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) — Broward College is transitioning to a tobacco and smoke-free environment.

Starting in the Fall semester,  smoking or the use of tobacco products on campus will not be allowed.

College officials said the move is meant to promote a healthy environment for students, staff and the community.

“Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable death and disease in this country,” said Brenda Bordogna, Broward College’s employee wellness program manager.

To ease the transition for those who use tobacco products, the college is offering tobacco cessation programs.  Nursing students at the college will be used as facilitators for the program.
