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

In 2013, all of the department chairs were contacted by the Office of Sustainability, asking who in their department were conducting "sustainability-related" and "sustainability-focused" research. Once this list of potential candidates was known, we contacted individual faculty. In 2014, for STARS 2.0, new faculty were analyzed through the same method.
