There are more faculty members doing sustainability research, but we only were able to get names and research interests for 73 of them.

It is important to note that number of departments in the AC-1 section (31) and PRE-5 (32) differs from this section (39) due to some courses belonging to "interdepartmental programs", rather than a specific department, whereas in AC-9, faculty belong to specific departments.
