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

All faculty were given AASHE's criteria for sustainability research and then were asked if any of their research in the last three years met the criteria.

The inventory included all faculty at College of the Atlantic. We did not include lecturers or adjunct faculty.
