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

OSU Sustainability Office staff reviewed all 1,488 rows of active research award data for FY16 and coded awards according to their alignment with Earth Charter and other sustainability principles. As indicated in OSU’s Strategic Plan, research activities should advance the science of sustainable earth ecosystems, improve human health and wellness, promote economic development and social progress, or expand the current knowledge base within sustainability focus areas such as alternative energy, climate, and materials sciences. Faculty and staff were considered researchers if they were successfully awarded research money via an external grant allocation or process.

Please note that the count of "number of academic departments (or the equivalent) that include at least one faculty or staff member that conducts research" listed for this credit is greater than the academic department count in other credits. For this Research credit, we define "academic departments" to include all university units conducting sponsored research, which includes centers, institutes and programs (CIPS), cooperative extension offices, Ag Experiment Stations, Student Affairs and others, in addition to traditional academic departments.

The information presented here is self-reported. While AASHE staff review portions of all STARS reports and institutions are welcome to seek additional forms of review, the data in STARS reports are not verified by AASHE. If you believe any of this information is erroneous or inconsistent with credit criteria, please review the process for inquiring about the information reported by an institution and complete the Data Inquiry Form.
