In partnership with UC Davis, CSU San Marcos created a tobacco use tracking tool called Clear the Air. This online tool aims to collect real-time data about tobacco waste and use trends around campus, including e-cigarettes and vapes.
This information gathers feedback on Hotspots, which are areas with a high concentration of tobacco waste/use and provides an indicator of where policy education is needed. Users are also able to comment on areas of campus that are clean. This project is funded by the California Tobacco-Related Disease Research Program Award in collaboration with UC Davis's Breathe Free project.
