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

Each year the Dean of the College’s office requests curriculum vitae updates from everyone at the rank of instructor and above. From these updates, a list of Faculty Achievements for the previous academic year is complied. Staff in the Sustainability Office reviews this list and copies those that are sustainability-focused research, publications, and accomplishments to a running list of these accomplishments for the past three academic years.
