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):
SLU has recently documented process for handling indoor air quality (IAQ) concerns. Previously, IAQ issues were fielded collaboratively by Facilities Management (FM) and the Office of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS), with FM responsible for operational and maintenance issues and EHS responsible for chemical/ biological hazards. There is a guide online posted on the Facilities Services website which instructs campus users on what to do for IAQ concerns and which department to contact. Most non-immediate concerns will be entered into our FAMIS service work order request system. Instructions on how to use this are posted in the IAQ document. On the website, people can also find educational information about IAQ and causes/remediation of issues.

Facilities Management and the Office of Environmental Health & Safety work together to ensure that proper air quality is maintained in all campus buildings. Occupants may submit all indoor air quality concerns (IAQ) through our FAMIS service work order request system.
