Has the institution developed a definition of sustainability research?:
Yes

A copy of the institution's definition of sustainability research:

Cal Poly Pomona University supports a simple, comprehensive, and commonly endorsed definition of sustainability - meeting the needs of present generations without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainability research consists of any research, scholarly, or creative activity that supports this definition by advancing the equitable endurance of social, economic, and environmental systems. Such research furthers our understanding of the integration of these systems, our understanding of the forces that challenge their sustainability, or our understanding of ways to effectively promote community action toward positive social, economic and environmental outcomes.

Yes
