A brief description of the institution’s main campus and other aspects of the institutional boundary used to complete this report:

Ithaca campus is our main campus for teaching and research for both graduate and undergraduate degrees. We are using the same boundaries as we do for the Ithaca Campus Master Plan and Climate Action Plan.

Which of the following features are present on campus and which are included within the institutional boundary?:
Present? Included?
Agricultural school Yes Yes
Medical school Yes No
Other professional school with labs and clinics (e.g. dental, nursing, pharmacy, public health, veterinary) Yes Yes
Satellite campus Yes No
Farm larger than 5 acres or 2 hectares Yes Yes
Agricultural experiment station larger than 5 acres or 2 hectares Yes No
Hospital Yes No

The rationale for excluding any features that are present from the institutional boundary:

Regarding the medical school and hospital, our Weill Cornell Medical Colleges are located in New York City (enrollment = 1130; 7616 (Faculty/Staff) and Doha, Qatar (enrollment = 305; (Faculty/Staff 905, however staff not considered Cornell employees). Cornell Tech is an engineering campus located on Roosevelt Island in NYC. It is a joint venture between Cornell University and the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. (Faculty 27, Acad Prof 4, Staff 58). Satellite campuses are excluded because the students do not attend classes at the Ithaca campus. Agricultural experiment stations are also excluded - Cornell University Agricultural Experiment Station manages 7 research farms, remote from the main campus, totaling 2,467 acres across the state.
