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

Research provided through ISUReD was utilized for baseline FY 15 (July 1, 2014 thru June 30, 2015) as the base research inventory. The Research Symposium guidebooks for FY 15 and FY 16 were utilized to identify sustainability research utilizing the principals of the Earth Charter as the criteria.
