CYAN College Program
Since 1998, the CYAN College Program has been partnering with college students, faculty, staff, and tobacco control professionals to transform tobacco-related norms on college campuses. Through training, education, and support, the College Program has been and continues to be successful in eliminating tobacco and tobacco industry presence in college communities. The College Program is also responsible for coordinating the COUGH (Campuses Organized and United for Good Health) Coalition, a statewide movement working to promote tobacco-free college campuses throughout California.
How We Can Help You:
CYAN coordinates statewide advocacy campaigns and supports local advocacy efforts on a variety of tobacco-related issues on college campuses. In addition to organizing and supporting advocacy campaigns, we provide a variety of services to individuals, organizations, and coalitions working on tobacco issues at a college or university campus. The following is a menu of ways CYAN can support your local efforts:
- Training Opportunities
- Technical Assistance (e.g., policy development, material development, etc.)
- Networking Opportunities
CYAN also maintains a database of tobacco-free policies on California college campuses. The online database is broken up by system (i.e., UC, CSU, CCC, private) as well as type of policy (i.e., smoke-free, sponsorship, research). Additionally, anational list of 100% smoke-free campuses and 100% tobacco-free campuses has been made available by American for Nonsmokers’ Rights and the American Lung Association of Oregon.
