A brief description of when and why the GHG emissions baseline was adopted:

Our main facility opened completely in 2012. Many of the design set-backs were implemented by July 2014. Employee and Student data is from IPED and is for the period September 1 through August 30. The data for vehicle emissions is from April 1 though March 30 to coincide with the NY Executive Order 4 Report parameters. (Vehicle logs are not available for April 2014 through March 2015).

Number of other individuals resident on-site 0 0
Total full-time equivalent student enrollment 12,824 11,923
Full-time equivalent of employees 1,604 1,486
Full-time equivalent of students enrolled exclusively in distance education 1,063 1,254
Weighted Campus Users 10,023.75 9,116.25

Adjusted net Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions per weighted campus user:

GHG emissions are based on calendar year.
Student and employee occupancy is based on IPED data July 1-June 30.
Vehicle Fleet data is based on the time period April 1-March 30 to correspond to the time frame in the NY Executive Order 4 report.
