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

This assessment was drawn from a review of self-reported and college sponsored research activity including the faculty working on the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) projects and Faculty Foundation Grants. The April 2018 Faculty Notes (attached) highlights faculty research developments.

Additional documentation to support the submission:

Evergreen does not have distinct academic departments. Since faculty co-teach across disciplines and rotate through graduate and undergraduate levels it isn't possible to define any distinctively separate set within the faculty. Also, faculty research is not a criterion for either faculty promotion or tenure at Evergreen. Therefore, faculty research plays a very different role in academic engagement at the college. Both externally and institutionally sponsored research is a small piece of our academic work.
