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

The inventory questionnaire was co-developed by the Sustainability research and curriculum committees. The inventory was distributed in march 2022, through department chairs. The total number of researchers was obtained through human resources by searching for the number of faculty appointments. This may not be the most accurate measurement. There was also a low response to the inventory story so it is possible that this is an inaccurate representation of sustainability research at Georgia Southern University.
