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

The Consortium for Energy, Economics and the Environment (CE3) provides a strong research and teaching platform for faculty, staff and students interested in energy and environmental issues, coupled with the extensive regional resources of Southeastern Ohio. In FY13, a graduate assistant in the Office of Sustainability consulted CE3 when gathering information for this credit. Unfortunately the infrastructure for tracking all sustainability-related research activities is not yet set up on an institutional basis; therefore, the total number of faculty engaged in sustainability research is an educated guess.

1.) Marina Peterson, Performance Studies (Interdisciplinary Arts): Social Sustainability, Globalization.
2.) Jason Trembly,Mechanical Engineering: Ohio University's sustainable energy institute researches remediation of hydraulic fracturing wastewater
