Our Statement of Core Values includes the following tenet: “We are committed to the well-being of each member of the community.” At Hiram, we care for each person’s well-being in a multitude of ways: intellectually, socially, spiritually and physically. In 2022, we will be taking steps to expand on that commitment and to preserve the physical well-being of our students, faculty, staff and campus visitors.

Starting January 1, 2022, we will be a smoke-free, tobacco-free college. Hiram College will prohibit the use of smoking and tobacco products on all college-owned property, including our main campus, the James H. Barrow Biological Field Station and the Northwoods Field Station.

We made this decision with three goals in mind:

  1. By prohibiting smoking and tobacco use, we want everyone to be safe, healthy and comfortable at any Hiram facility.
  2. We also hope that this decision will prevent anyone at the College from starting the habit of smoking or tobacco use.
  3. Finally, we want to encourage those who do smoke or use tobacco to use the resources available to stop.
