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):

The university has been adding CO2 sensors for the past five years, to maintain and improve air quality. In addition, the university has installed three projects involving lab space where TVOCs, CO2, etc. is monitored by high tech sensors to alert officials if abnormal conditions are present. If an occupant has a complaint, the complaint is reported to Facilities Services and/or Housing, who schedules a work order and/or contacts maintenance directly. The work order is then given to the maintenance department, who follows up with the complaint. The maintenance supervisor and/or safety manager will review a plan of action with a specific department when necessary. All records of IAQ related issues are maintained at Facilities Services (Customer Service).
