HRP Presents Peer Audit Program at Convention in Texas

February 21st, 2014

HRP presented at the Texas Community College Teachers Association (TCCTA) 67th annual convention in San Antonio, TX. HRP’s Senior Project Manager Jackie Baxley, PE, presented the Environmental Peer Audit Program for Texas colleges and universities.

“Every campus, big and small, faces unique challenges in applying environmental requirements,” said Baxley. “By being a partner with our campuses, not just a service provider, we are able to help them navigate the application of these challenges in a manner that will sustain through the changing dynamics of a college campus.”

HRP has worked with Texas schools since 2010, aiding the campuses with compliance through the environmental peer audit program. Baxley is the Program Manager for all contracted schools in Texas and Arkansas, totaling 54 colleges and universities. HRP has provided the program for schools in Florida, Indiana, Kansas, North Carolina, New Jersey, Tennessee, Michigan, Georgia and Alabama as well.

The environmental peer audit program developed by HRP is a proactive approach that allows a school to self-audit using personnel from peer audit institutions trained on environmental regulations and armed with auditing software. HRP visits these colleges and universities to teach the program on-campus and prepare the school for completing the program each year to make sure they are in compliance.

Under HRP’s collaborative peer audit program, many colleges and universities have avoided hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines while achieving environmental compliance throughout their campuses. Please see the National Program of Environmental Peer Audit Statistics for further details.

TCCTA’s annual convention held various topics for educators in community colleges, ranging from online teaching to innovative laboratory procedures. Comprised of educators from every teaching discipline, as well as counselors, librarians, and administrators, TCCTA is the largest organization of postsecondary educators in Texas.
