BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The Southern Board of Supervisors has decided to ban tobacco at all of Southern University’s campuses starting in January.

The move makes Southern the first college system in Louisiana to ban all tobacco products. Nicholls State University became the first public college in Louisiana to become tobacco free at the beginning of this calendar year.

Southern University System President Ronald Mason Jr. says the new policy is about promoting healthy lifestyles and setting a quality standard for all of higher education.

 

The ban will affect the main Southern academic campuses in Baton Rouge, New Orleans and Shreveport, the Southern University Law Center and the Southern University Agricultural Center.
