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

This inventory included full time faculty, part time faculty, and staff researchers.

The MRU Institute of Environmental Sustainability (IES) selects and funds sustainability focused research within Mount Royal University. The Institute also collaborates with externally funded researchers who work through MRU IES.
Sustainability focused research concentrates on the concept of sustainability, including its social, economic and environmental spheres.
An inventory listing sustainability research conducted in the academic year 2018/2019 was collated by the IES Program Administrator from the 2017 and 2018 Annual Reports.
