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

Using the criteria provided by AASHE STARS and according to the values of Earth Charter, a list of sustainability focused and related researchers was complied. Researcher information was gotten via the provost, deans of each school, and individual professors. Some names may not have been included on list due to lack of responses or information available. Researchers are considered all those that conduct "organized and systematic investigation" of topics of their own choosing with the goal of societal, student, and self betterment. (this includes research done for film in the communications school)
