Clean Air Corridor







The next time you're on campus, you may notice the air smells a bit sweeter. That's because Portland State's new Clean Air Corridor (CAC) just went into effect this week!

The CAC is a designated corridor located in the heart of the Portland State campus, and it's the most frequented area for students, faculty, staff, and guests.

This newly established pollution-free zone prohibits smoking and the creation of air pollutants such as exhaust from idling vehicles, gas-powered leaf blowers, pressure washers, and small utility vehicles.

The CAC represents a positive step forward in PSU’s ongoing efforts to provide a healthy, safe, and sustainable environment for all members of the campus community. The goal is to protect all who live, work, study or visit the campus from health concerns associated with second-hand smoke and other air pollutants. This new corridor also enables Portland State to align with other Oregon University System Universities, regional Community Colleges, and at least 10 other higher education institutions in Portland that have smoke-free campus efforts and policies.

The CAC was designated in response to documented complaints to Multnomah County about second-hand smoke, and it supports the University's overall goal of providing consistent leadership on sustainability.
