Clearing the air: American Indian tribal college students' exposure to second hand smoke & attitudes towards smoke free campus policies.
J Am Coll Health 2018 Feb-Mar; 66(2):133-140JA

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

The purpose of this study was to examine knowledge, awareness, and support for campus smoke-free policies.

PARTICIPANTS

1,256 American Indian tribal college students from three tribal colleges in the Midwest and Northern Plains.

METHODS

Data are from an observational cross-sectional study of American Indian tribal college students, collected through a web-based survey.

RESULTS

Only 40% of tribal college students reported not being exposed to second hand smoke in the past 7 days. A majority of nonsmokers (66%) agreed or strongly agreed with having a smoke-free campus, while 34.2% of smokers also agreed or strongly agreed. Overall, more than a third (36.6%) of tribal college students were not aware of their campus smoking policies.

CONCLUSIONS

Tribal campuses serving American Indian students have been much slower in adopting smoke-free campus policies. Our findings show that tribal college students would support a smoke-free campus policy.
