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:


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

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

Reason for excluding hospital:
In 2014 the goal was to have the Climate Action Plan and the STARS operational/facilities submission align. The Climate Action Plan boundary was recommended in 2010. The outline is MU owned property of the general bounds of the Main Campus (old 63 on the east, Gustin Golf Course on the west, Tennis Center to the south, Locust street to north) but excludes Hospital/clinic functions, includes Parking Structures.

Reason for excluding farm:
Farms are occasionally left to the University in estate plans. In some cases, they are developed into research centers that are part of the Agricultural Experiment Station. They are not currently included in the campus Climate Action Plan.

Reason for excluding agricultural experiment station:
We are including the contiguous campus for the STARS report to have consistency with our Climate Action Plan. The Agricultural Experiment Station is located at 19 research sites throughout the state covering nearly 14,000 acres, none of which are on the contiguous campus.
