A brief description of how the institution ensures compliance with green building design and construction guidelines and policies:

Implementing sustainable building construction and renovation practices is an ongoing process. Key elements of implementation will include input from the Campus Planning and Design Committee, supplementing the project architect selection process, and project team education. The guidelines will be reviewed on a project specific case. The Project Team reviews guidelines and checklist to establish an agreement as to which sustainable goals the project is to achieve. The Project Team will meet periodically throughout the duration of the project to review the project checklist and status of each goal. At the conclusion of the project the architect will issue a written report documenting the final results of the team's effort.
