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):

HVAC Air Filteration Program. Preventative maintenance involving air filter checking and or changing, with associated cleaning of filter racks or filter grills on either a monthly or quarterly basis. A complete Air Filter Inventory is maintained at Support Services HVAC Department. There are two HVAC service techs whose primary responsibility is to maintain air filter cleanliness. All occupied buildings office spaces and conference rooms have an Energy Management system that start their air handling equipment a minimum of 30 minutes before occupancy to pre-flush the building air with fresh filtered ventilation air. Dormitory air handling unites operate 24/7 when occupied with students. All building air handling units employ a combination of measured or digitally controlled CO2 and temperature controlled ventilation damper systems providing fresh, filtered outside air. Any and all odor or smells are immediately addressed to determine the cause and then rectified. A work order is created by the Universities FAMIS service request system to track any concerns. The resources of an Industrial Hygienist are available if necessary to sample air or room surfaces.
