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

The University lists faculty research on the Lewis University website. Information was taken from data listed there. Abstracts for the research projects are also available from that site. Each abstract is read to determine a connection to sustainability. If a connection is found, a follow up is made to the faculty/staff member to gather more information regarding the project. If it fits the criteria, they are counted towards this credit.
