Brandeis does have many faculty who work on this issue. However, defining the term "sustainability research" in ER-15, is viewed as important before claiming credits on this specific topic of faculty involvement in ER-16, while departments involved are clearer. A near term goal is to create a definition amongst faculty researchers so all appropriate research activities can be counted.
