A brief description of the methodology the institution followed to complete the research inventory (including the types of faculty and staff included as researchers):
In October, 2016, all regular faculty (including tenured, tenure-track, lecturer-track) received an email request from Emory’s Office of Institutional Research and by the Office of Sustainability Initiatives to report sustainability-related research. Containing pre-populated lists of all externally-funded research projects during the previous 3 years, it offered definitions of sustainability and asked faculty to check if their research met the criteria. An opportunity to add any additional or unfunded research projects was provided. Multiple emails were sent to faculty and some personal emails encouraging response were sent by Office of Sustainability and department chairs. A faculty member with the Sustainability Office reviewed each item in the inventory. Entries were compiled into a master inventory by School and Department. The 2016 inventory of research is published at: http://sustainability.emory.edu/page/1005/CURRICULUM-&-RESEARCH. The number of departments was calculated by the Office of Institutional Research in collaboration with the Office of Sustainability, with the advice of several Deans’ offices. Some Emory units (such as the College of Arts and Sciences) are organized into departments; some (such as Law and Nursing) are not. A separate inventory of research was compiled by Climate at Emory, and where faculty research was missing from the sustainability list, those faculty were added with permission.
