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

Florida State University’s main campus is located in downtown Tallahassee, Florida with several campus buildings across the city including the Reservation, an outdoor recreational area, SW Campus, containing the Innovation Park research area, golf course, and the FSU-FAMU College of Engineering. Also included in the main campus footprint is the FSU Marine Lab, a coastal and marine research hub located in St. Teresa, FL. For the purposes of this reporting, the FSU boundary will include the areas mentioned above.

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

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

Apart from the main campus, FSU also contains several satellite campuses located throughout Florida and internationally. While FSU has a medical school, it does not house an on-site training facility. FSU partners with local hospitals which contain academic and lab spaces to ensure hands-on training. These FSU features were not included in the boundary for this report to ensure data could be gathered, accurate, and consistent. The areas included in this report give an accurate representation of FSU’s commitment to sustainability.
