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:

Unless otherwise noted, the data in this report represents the functions of the main campus including the adjacent Lake Shore Nature Preserve and UW-Madison Arboretum.

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 No 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:

UW-Madison operates twelve agricultural research stations throughout the state totaling more than 5,000 acres and hundreds of agricultural research animals. Many of these stations are joint research enterprises with other federal, state, and private organizations and all fall outside of the scope of the main campus. The only exception to this are the Walnut Street Greenhouses which are on the main campus and are included within the institutional boundary for this report.

UW Health, which owns and operates the hospital adjacent to the UW-Madison campus, is independent and non-profit, receiving no (non-grant) state funding and is a separate organizational entity from the UW System. Faculty from the School of Medicine that also work at UW Health are included in this report. Research and teaching buildings that some hospital staff utilize (but which are owned and operated by UW-Madison) are included within the institutional boundary for this report.
