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

Projects related to the definition of “research in sustainability” were identified by National Science Foundation (NSF) field of study (fos) code. Studies categorized under the following areas have been included: Bioengineering/Biomedical engineering, Geological and Earth Sciences, Other Geo/Atmospheric/Earth Sciences, Life Sciences (including: Agricultural Sciences, Biological and Biomedical Sciences, Health Sciences, Natural Resources and Conservation, Other Life Sciences), Psychology, Social Sciences (Anthropology, Economics, Political Science and Other Social Sciences), Education, and Social Work.

The Office of Sustainability staff then connected each research to their project title and abstract, and removed researchers that did not meet the AASHE STARS AC-9 criteria.
