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

All campus building utilize the MetaSys energy management system. The campus is mindful of ASHRAE standards and sets building HVAC systems accordingly. The Division of Facilities Development(DFD) sets forth the policies for state owned facilities.
The work order system (TMA) is used to document any heating, cooling, or general ventilation issues.

I would note any monitoring activities we have done this past year. They may relate better to energy conservation efforts though than to Indoor Air Quality, so note is as applicable. One thing not mentioned though, but may be worth spelling out is the ongoing preventative maintenance program we have to keep our HVAC systems running properly (filter changes, belt replacements, etc, etc.). Mark Gillis could probably provide a few comments that would apply nicely to this section.
