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

Richland Facilities Services personnel conduct weekly tests of CO2 levels in campus buildings. Each week readings are taken in four areas, one in each quadrant of the main campus, while the areas are unoccupied: typically two classrooms and two hallways. Facilities Services also tests for particles when a building occupant registers a complaint. Particle meters test for mold, dust, and other harmful particles.
