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

I emailed faculty (see below) and used self-reported blurbs about research. I also read faculty bios from the directory for tenured and tenure-track faculty and reported those blurbs as well: https://www.fortlewis.edu/academics/schools-departments/faculty-directory

On 2/3/20, I sent the following email: Dear faculty,

Please let me know if you conduct research that deals with topics of the environment or sustainability.

What?
If you are currently conducting research related to the environment and sustainability or have done so in the past three years, please send me a short blurb explaining the research (1-5 sentences).

When?
Send me your blurb by Friday, 2/7/20.

Why?
FLC is nationally recognized as a Princeton Review Green School. We receive points towards these accolades based on the number of faculty engaged with environmental and/or sustainability research. I will post the blurb you send me on the FLC sustainability website unless you ask me not to.
