A survey approach was used to determine the number of faculty engaged in sustainability research. Response rate was 27.7%. Of those responding, 316 faculty indicated that they engaged in sustainability research. A follow-up inquiry sent to non-responding PIs and co-PIs on sustainability research projects, as identified by their colleagues who did respond to the survey, allowed us to add an additional 127 faculty to this number, for a total of 443 faculty engaged in sustainability research. We view this as a conservative estimate of the true value, since not all faculty responded to our survey.
