Inventory of the institution’s sustainability research:

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

Faculty either self-identified as doing sustainability research or through analysis of their research, were identified by the Office of Sustainability and the Campus Sustainability Committee.

To qualify as sustainability-related research, the specific AASHE STARS criteria were used as it was a broad and inclusive approach that utilized the United Nations Sustainability Development goals and Sustainability Challenges.

Each faculty members bio, department affiliation, and research was reviewed.

The attached inventory includes retired, part-time, affiliated, and non-teaching faculty, however, only those currently teaching/doing research and who are full-time were included in the analysis.
