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

We used our registered researchers through our IRB process to determine total number of faculty/staff researchers. To determine number of academic departments (or equivalent) we reviewed all the departments the faculty/staff belonged to (within the IRB process), and only counted each academic department once.

For the faculty/staff that conducted sustainability research we surveyed them and determined whether or not their research fit STARS criteria.

Faculty/staff were only counted in this process. However, we did included Extended Learning (continuing education) and the Library (who have tenure-track faculty).
