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

All campus buildings are regularly monitored and maintained to ensure proper air quality for building occupants. Air filters are cleaned and replaced according to manufacturer standards. Building occupants are able to register complaints or raise concerns with air quality with their building manager. These complaints may then be entered into FAMIS, our facilities maintenance work order system. All air quality complaints are promptly addressed by the Environmental Health & Safety manager.

The LEED Platinum Higher Education Center features CO2 sensors that control the building ventilation rate based on the levels of CO2 in the building. Occupancy sensors in labs are used to reduce the minimum outside air changes from 10 air changes per hour (ACH) when occupied to four ACH when unoccupied.
