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

The Sustainability Manager conducted a survey in partnership with each department's leadership. Full results are presented in the uploaded inventory.

Only about half of all full-time faculty responded to the survey and the results are likely an underestimate of total sustainability-related research activity at Emerson College. Emerson is an arts and communications liberal arts institution, where many faculty are practitioners in their fields, rather than researchers.
