CPRIT Funded Projects & Facilities

Texas Tech has amended its smoke and tobacco-free environment policy to meet new requirements from the Cancer Prevention and Research institute of Texas (CPRIT). The organization adopted a rule prohibiting the use of any tobacco products by all employees and visitors in all buildings and structures where projects funded by CPRIT are taking place. The CPRIT rule includes the sidewalks, parking lots, walkways and attached parking structures immediately adjacent to those buildings. Signs will be posted in appropriate places around the buildings.

All organizations receiving CPRIT funding must certify a tobacco-free policy to receive CPRIT funding.
