Additional documentation to support the submission:
---

square foot data is reported in pre5 due a new building being opened on campus in September 2018. This building was not included in our 2018 utility data provided by our consultants and is therefore not included in our GHG accounting.

The information presented here is self-reported. While AASHE staff review portions of all STARS reports and institutions are welcome to seek additional forms of review, the data in STARS reports are not verified by AASHE.
