On-campus and commuter residents are not specifically tracked at the University at this time. Calculations were made based on the assumptions used in the Clean Air-Cool Planet Campus Carbon Calculator and reported on the ACUPCC website's Greenhouse Gas Inventory. These assumptions used the average residence hall population and assumed those students to be residential, non-commuter students, leaving 64% of the student base as a commuter population. Similarly, 90% of the faculty and staff population were considered to be commuter population and were calculated as such for the purposes of this credit.
Part-time students are also not tracked at the University at this time. All data reported for this credit is identical to the data reported on the ACUPCC website.
