A brief description of the institution's indoor air quality plan, policy, and/or practices:

Penn State's Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) plan covers all occupied space on campus. Offices, classrooms, and labs are covered by the IAQ plan. Labs and production area spaces would be covered under a specific standard that keeps air quality acceptable for the tasks being performed within the lab or production area.
The IAQ plan generally aims to provide fresh air, proper filtration, and reasonably clean duct work to all labs, offices, and classrooms on campus. It also aims to provide 20 CFM per person with carbon dioxide (Co2) levels around 800 or below.
