KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) - Kalamazoo Valley Community College’s board of trustees has voted to ban tobacco and electronic cigarette use on campus at the end of this year.

The vote was made Tuesday evening. The Kalamazoo Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1nLrvZ6 ) the ban would include chewing tobacco, as well as cigarettes, pipes, cigars and other smoking products. As of Jan. 1, people will only be able to smoke in personal vehicles on campus.

The new policy mirrors that of Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, which is going tobacco-free as of this September.

Hundreds of other schools in the U.S. have similar policies, including about two dozen colleges and universities in Michigan.
