A copy of the sustainability research inventory that includes the departments engaged in sustainability research:

The number of academic departments in which at least one faculty member engages in sustainability research is based on responses from department chairs in the spring and summer of 2012. Departments not responding were assumed to not have faculty engaged in sustainability research, although in some cases this likely is not true. That is, some departments that may be conducting sustainability research are not included in this count.

The total number of academic departments that conduct research is taken as the total number of departments that have tenured or tenure-track faculty on appointment.
