A brief description of the institution’s main campus and other aspects of the institutional boundary used to complete this report:
The main campus in Amherst, MA (1,463 acres) and the Mt. Ida satellite campus (72 acres) are included in the institutional boundary for this report. The UMass Center at Springfield, a 26,000 SF site in a single building that can accommodate 900 students, faculty and staff, is not included because UMass Amherst neither owns nor operates the facility and it is therefore difficult to gain access to any data related to the operations of this facility.

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

The rationale for excluding any features that are present from the institutional boundary:
Our first satellite campus for the entire Five Campus UMass System was opened in Springfield, MA on March 25th, 2014. The UMass Center at Springfield is 26,000 SF and can accomodate 900 students, faculty and staff. However, UMass does not own nor operate the facility and therefore it is difficult to gain access to any data related to the operations of this facility. For this reason, we have not included it in this report.
