Institutional control (Public, Private for-profit, or Private non-profit):

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

The SIU Carbondale main campus comprises 90% of the building area included within the reported institutional boundary, 54% of the buildings, and 13% of the land area. Also included are: research farms in Carbondale, Belleville, and Dowell; transportation education facilities at the Southern Illinois Airport in Murphysboro; environmental education facilities near Makanda; WSIU TV and radio broadcast stations; and other satellite facilities. The SIU School of Medicine facilities in Springfield are independently managed and are therefore not included in the reported institutional boundary.

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 Yes
Farm larger than 5 acres or 2 hectares Yes Yes
Agricultural experiment station larger than 5 acres or 2 hectares Yes Yes
Hospital No No

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

The SIU School of Medicine facilities in Springfield, IL, are managed independently of the facilities of the main Carbondale, IL, campus and its nearby satellites. Data pertaining to the Springfield, IL, facilities is excluded from reporting. All facilities managed by the SIU Carbondale Physical Plant are included in the reporting boundary.

Additional documentation to support the submission :

A combination of University-owned and leased structures and affiliated community hospitals provides the base for SIU School of Medicine programs. The main facilities for delivering the medical school curriculum are in Carbondale and Springfield. Facilities in Carbondale are home to the first year of the M.D. program and basic science research laboratories. Springfield facilities provide for the remaining three years of medical school as well as residency programs and additional basic research laboratories.
