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

The institution consists of the main campus in the heart of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. The main campus region contains 430 acres that encompass all of our buildings and residence halls, our farm, the Cedar Swamp, and our woodlot. The Farm is managed as an integrated system of 5+ acres of garden, 20 + acres of pasture, and 390+ acres of forested land.


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 No No
Other professional school with labs and clinics (e.g. dental, nursing, pharmacy, public health, veterinary) No No
Satellite campus No No
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:

We have majors in Sustainable Agriculture and Sustainable Food Systems, as well as a farm; however, it is part of the curriculum of the College and there is no separate school.
