A brief description of the methodology the institution followed to complete the research inventory:

The research inventory was conducted by auditing the 2020 Summer Showcase--a compilation of all of the faculty research that was conducted over the previous year. Using the authors' abstracts/summaries submitted for the Showcase, we compared their research goals and findings to the Sustainable Development Goals. If there was an explicit connection to one or more goals, we included their research in our "Sustainability Research."
