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

First, Earth Institute Human Resources ran a report and identified any person employed at the Earth Institute who is listed as a Staff Associate, Senior Staff Associate, Associate Research Scientist, Research Scientist, and Senior Research Scientist. The Earth Institute is the primary environmental research organization at Columbia University. Following this, to include researchers outside the Earth Institute involved in sustainability research, a review was conducted of each department included in our inventory as having a course in sustainability. Any faculty or staff listed in this department who identified having involvement in sustainability research was also included.
