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 methodology followed to complete the research inventory is as follows:
- ORSP (Office of Research and Sponsored Projects) provided the list of all faculty/staff who applied for grants for research for the last fiscal year.
- The list was reviewed, and the individuals who were conducting sustainability research (as defined by STARS) were counted on the attached document. Additional individuals whom have been involved in research were added by confirming with their departments that they were actively participating in research.
