A brief description of the methodology the institution followed to complete the research inventory:

Student interns studied online details of faculty research interests and accomplishments to determine relevance to sustainability. If the online material was not conclusive then the faculty members were emailed and asked if they thought their research was sustainability-focused, based on the AASHE definition in the STARS manual.

A brief description of notable accomplishments during the previous three years by faculty and/or staff engaged in sustainability research:

DeeAnn Reeder- Identification of deadly fungus that causes white-nose syndrome in bats.
George Shields- high-speed computing to predict how and where water and other molecules will cluster to form clouds. The results may help scientists understand how clouds will affect the pace of climate change.
Nancy White- true economic consequences of the ongoing energy exploration and its long-term effect on local economies where the drilling occurs
Charles Kim & Jamie Hendry- Improve vision in Guatemala
Chris Martine- Burpee Chair in Plant Genetics and Research
