Texas College Campus Tobacco Policies: Examining the Comprehensiveness of College Tobacco Policies
Objective: We examined the comprehensiveness of Texas college campus tobacco policies. Methods: Tobacco policies from 189 colleges were evaluated on comprehensiveness of prohibited tobacco/nicotine products and their marketing. Chi-square analyses were used to compare 2-year versus 4-year, 4-year public versus 4-year private, and rural versus urban campuses on comprehensiveness and inclusion of electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS). Results: Two-year campuses were more likely than 4-year campuses to have a comprehensive policy. No differences were found between 4-year public and private campuses or rural and urban settings on comprehensiveness. No differences were found for any campuses tobacco policy on inclusion of ENDS. Conclusions: College campuses should evaluate tobacco policy comprehensiveness given that comprehensive tobacco policies may result in fewer first-time tobacco users.
