A brief description of the institution’s indoor air quality program(s) (including information about regular auditing or monitoring, mechanisms for occupants to register complaints, and action plans):
Managing air quality across campus is the responsibility of Environmental Health & Safety. The goal of the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) program is to maintain a safe indoor air quality environment for all employees and students, and to identify and correct hazards & contamination. The Environmental Health and Safety office monitors College compliance through audit, program development, education, accident investigation, and consultation. The Facility Life Cycle Design Guidelines (2010) require that occupancy sensor and carbon dioxide monitors be connected to HVAC systems wherever feasible and that at least 45% of materials (adhesives & sealants, paints &coatings, carpets & carpet cushions, and composite panels) meet specific low levels of volatile organic compound off-gassing. The Design Guidelines also outline construction standards to protect ductwork and equipment from contamination.
