The boundary of this submission is the primary FGCU campus and Student Housing facilities.

The Kapnick Education & Research Center was built as a joint effort between the Naples Botanical Gardens and FGCU. At present, the Botanical Gardens uses the majority of the facility; FGCU uses minimal lab space for Faculty Research and the Multipurpose Room for occasional presentations. This building is not included in our institutional boundary since its primary usage does not reflect activities material to the university. Furthermore, the impact of FGCU used space at Kapnick relative to the overall operational performance of the university is minimal.

The Vester Marine Lab is owned by the FGCU Foundation and the scale of the property's impact relative to the overall operational performance of the university is minimal. Therefore, it is not included in our operational data sets.

The Buckingham Property that FGCU acquired in 2010 is not material to this report at this point in time. It was not included in our most recent GHG report, there are no classes or offices on the property, and planning for the property's future use is still underway.

The Atrium in Ft. Myers, the Renaissance Academy in Naples, and the Herald Court Center, in Punta Gorda are leased spaces within commercially owned or public buildings. These are not included in our operation credits because FGCU does not have control or significant influence over the physical structures. However, continuing Education classes offered in Naples and Punta Gorda are included in EN-11 because they are an essential part of FGCU's Public Engagement.
