Cornell’s boundary for our STARS submission represents the Ithaca Campus boundary developed by Cornell’s Campus Planning Office during the creation of The Campus Master Plan. Cornell owns and operates other facilities outside of the Ithaca Campus. However, we did not include our outlying operations, such as Weill Cornell Medical College in NYC, to provide alignment with our ACUPCC Climate Action Plan boundary and also our EPA Greenhouse Gas reporting requirements. Details of the Cornell Master Plan for the Ithaca Campus can be found at
