A brief description of the methodology the institution followed to complete the research inventory (including the types of faculty and staff included as researchers):

The annual research expenditures report for fiscal year 2014 was reviewed to determine the number of departments and faculty conducting research during the year.
Each project was reviewed and categorized as sustainability research. Data were tabulated based upon the categorization.
