Carroll announced the policy Thursday, and it expands on a policy that bans use of tobacco products on campus. The expanded ban is expected to begin in January. Nicotine causes a wide range of health problems and is the leading cause of preventable death, hospital officials said, and is not part of the healthy lifestyle they are trying to promote.
