A brief description of how the institution ensures compliance with sustainable building operation and maintenance guidelines and policies:

The operations/building staff work with the Office of Sustainability to meet and discuss how to improve and upgrade in accordance to green practices. All of the staff are very aware of procedures and environmentally friendly practices and ethics through training and by working with companies that practice such green standards.
As for compliance , there is no "policing" system, however, the staff are educated and work to achieve the projections in the campus's strategic plan.
Custodians are trained to use micro-fibre clothes, no chemicals to clean surfaces and the cloths are cleaned with high temperature wash to kill germs.
