Indoor Air Quality Program

Indoor air quality is important to the health and productivity of students and employees at Ball State University. Indoor air can be affected in many different ways by very simple and common items. Some of the items that can affect indoor air quality are furnishings, carpet, and paint. Other factors potentially affecting indoor air are student and employee activities, housekeeping practices, pesticide management, ventilation design, operation, maintenance, and fungal growth.  Although, these sources are the common factors, they are not always to blame for poor indoor air quality.

The scope of the BSU Indoor Air Quality Program is to help reduce and identify indoor air problems to help promote the wellbeing of all students and employees at Ball State University. It is also intended to inform and explain factors that affect indoor air environments and how to correct problematic situations.
