New web site created for reporting smoking concerns

Pitt’s Clean Air Initiative has created a web site ( as a way for the University community to report safety and health-related concerns.

The goals of the Clean Air Initiative are to address problems related to smoking and tobacco use on the Pittsburgh campus, including reducing the rate of smoking campus-wide; changing the social norms to discourage smoking and promote cessation, and addressing smoker etiquette and environmental issues, such as second-hand smoke and tobacco-related litter.

(See Oct. 23 University Times.)

The Clean Air Initiative is a task force of faculty, staff and students recently formed under the auspices of the ReSET (Reduce Smoking and Exposure to Tobacco) Center, part of the Graduate School of Public Health; the Office of Health Education and Promotion, part of Student Health Service, and the tobacco dependence initiative program, part of UPMC Health Plan.

Information submitted on the web site will be used to track problem areas around the campus.
