Does the institution use motion, infrared, and/or light sensors to reduce energy use for lighting in at least one building?:
Yes

A brief description of the technology used:

A number of buildings use timers and sensors to manage lighting.

For instance, in Kroon Hall natural light is augmented with artificial light to maintain a constant lighting level; the latter is also controlled by sensors that shut off automatically if no one is present.
