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 1,644 rows of active research award data for FY17 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.
