A brief description of the institution’s main campus and other aspects of the institutional boundary used to complete this report:
With billions of dollars in high-tech investments, SUNY Poly represents the world's most advanced university-driven research enterprise featuring two unique locations in Albany and Utica, offering students a one-of-a-kind academic experience alongside its high-tech hubs across New York State that provide corporate partners with access to an unmatched highly educated workforce within an advanced R&D and commercialization ecosystem. Albany SUNY Poly’s Albany NanoTech Complex, a 1.65 million-square-foot megaplex with the only fully-integrated, 300mm computer chip pilot prototyping and demonstration lines within 135,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanrooms. Unmatched nanotechnology-centered educational resources and capabilities provide the foundation for New York’s burgeoning Tech Valley. Utica SUNY Poly’s Utica campus offers the unique combination of tree-lined pathways, modern buildings, and rolling hills near the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains--an inspiring backdrop for challenging academics that are both rewarding and in demand. Students come from all over New York, many other states and more than 20 other nations to enroll in STEM-focused programs, business, nursing, and more. SUNY Poly also founded and manages the Computer Chip Commercialization Center (Quad-C) at its Utica location.

The rationale for excluding any features that are present from the institutional boundary:
Fuller Road Management Corporation (“FRMC”) is a 501(c)(25) not-for-profit corporation formed to establish a state-of-the-art infrastructure in which new and technologically innovative businesses can develop and basic scientific research can be translated into commercially viable applications with emphasis on the most enabling nanotechnology fields in the global economy of the 21st century. FRMC plans, designs, develops, constructs, owns, operates and leases facilities necessary to enable such an environment with the ultimate objective that each initiative will advance the educational and research mission of SUNY Polytechnic Institute. FRMC’s support of SUNY Polytechnic Institute includes enhancement of research opportunities for faculty, students and staff, promotion of the economic development in and competitiveness of New York State by encouraging and facilitating the transfer of technological resources to the marketplace and enhancing the ability of SUNY Polytechnic Institute to attract public and private funding to further research and technological development. Fort Schuyler Management Corporation (FSMC) is a key component in New York’s knowledge driven economy, as envisioned by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo. FSMC is a State University of New York (SUNY Polytechnic Institute) affiliated, private, not-for-profit, 501c(3) corporation that facilitates research and economic development opportunities in support of New York’s emerging nanotechnology and semiconductor clusters. Specifically, FSMC develops, constructs and manages world-class research, development and commercialization facilities to enable public-private partnerships in conjunction with Governor Cuomo’s START-UP NY initiative. FSMC’s ownership of all facilities and infrastructure promotes and secures educational, innovation, and commercialization operations in support of the State of New York and the State University of New York. Properties owned and managed by these entities are separate from SUNY Polytechnic Institute.
