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

Searched through each college, 10 totals and read through every professor whom published work at Texas State. We then clicked on their profiles, looked under the year 2017, and read the descriptions of each piece. We looked for key words, the same key words we used to search for sustainable courses, and document all found published pieces.
