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

Facilities Services Energy Control staff monitor indoor air quality. For many buildings we use a Metesis computer system that allows monitoring of carbon dioxide levels in all rooms of buildings and the entire building overall. For other buildings we monitor temperature as well as regularly change air filters. To ensure air filters are working properly, the university uses a pressure sensor on both sides of the air filter. When pressure is unequal on both sides, Mechanical Electrical and Plumbing replace it (because it has filled with particulate).
