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

Faculty with the rank of Professor, Associate Professor, Assistant Professor, Research Professor, Research Associate Professor, and Research Assistant Professor were considered to have formal research obligations, and their names were collected for each academic department. Departments with no faculty with these rankings or departments that do not formally conduct research were not considered an academic department that conducts research. From this list, sustainability research faculty were either self-identified or identified as receiving sustainability funding for research related work.
