CYAN College Policy Database

CYAN tracks tobacco-related policies on college and university campuses in California.  The collected policies are organized by school type (UC, CSU, Community College, Private) and policy type.  In addition to the California policy lists, we are pleased to feature two national policy lists: a Research Funding Policies list by CYAN and a Smoke-Free and Tobacco-Free Policies list by Americans for Nonsmokers’ Rights.

These policies were collected from college websites, school catalogs, and campus administrations.  CYAN makes every attempt to provide the most up-to-date policy information.  If you don’t see your campus listed or need to have your college’s information updated, please contact

In June 2017, CYAN released the second California Public College & University Smoke/Tobacco-Free Policy Report Card.  The Report Card was a collaborative project of CYAN and COUGH.  The Report reviewed and assessed tobacco use policies on all 146 public colleges and universities in the state.  Findings from the Report Card are available here.
