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

A committee of faculty developed the sustainability research definition and submitted it to the Campus Sustainability Council for approval. The Sustainability Office reviewed the college faculty websites and cv's of faculty to develop a draft list of faculty engaged in sustainability research projects. The Provost reviewed and suggested revisions to this list, and it was then reviewed by a faculty subcommittee of the Campus Sustainability Council before it was sent out to all faculty members for their response.
