Robeson Community College

Breathe Free

In conjunction with the Robeson Community College Board of Trustees and President Melissa Singler, the Breathe Free Initiative is pleased to announce that RCC is now a Tobacco Free/Smoke Free Campus!

Our goal is to provide a learning and work environment that promotes productivity and the well-being of its students and employees. The College recognizes that tobacco use in the workplace can adversely affect employees as well as students and other patrons. The smoking/tobacco use policy applies to employees, students, and visitors while on the College premises.

Employees and students may contact Student Support Services for information regarding the effects of smoking/tobacco use and the availability of smoking cessation programs.
