A brief description of the institution’s main campus and other aspects of the institutional boundary used to complete this report:
The University of Iowa has a beautiful, self-contained campus in Iowa City, IA. Spanning over 2,000 acres of land, the campus includes over 200 buildings ranging from academic to power plants, dormitory, and athletic facilities.

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 Yes
Other professional school with labs and clinics (e.g. dental, nursing, pharmacy, public health, veterinary) Yes Yes
Satellite campus No No
Farm larger than 5 acres or 2 hectares No No
Agricultural experiment station larger than 5 acres or 2 hectares No No
Hospital Yes No

The rationale for excluding any features that are present from the institutional boundary:
The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics are among the largest operational medical teaching facilities in the world. These facilities are not included in the UI submission. When STARS assessments fully reflect the challenges facing very large medical treatment and teaching hospitals, UI officials will review the potential for their inclusion.
