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

A six-question survey using Google Forms was sent out to faculty members in November 2014 with an introduction from a faculty member. It asked for their name and department. It asked if their research included issues of sustainability, and if so, to briefly describe it. It asked if they taught any "sustainability classes" or "classes that include sustainability" and to list them. This enabled us to collect both quantitative and qualitative information.
