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

Ohio State chose to only report on faculty in research. Using BuckIQ (an internal HR system), all tenured/tenure track and research faculty were identified to give a total number of faculty doing research. Using the same keywords used to identify sustainability courses in AC 1, we obtained the preliminary total number of faculty engaged in sustainability research. The list was further solidified by identifying faculty who teach courses related to sustainability as our faculty’s research and teaching areas are highly correlated. This identified the total number of faculty engaged in sustainability research as well as the total number of departments that conduct sustainability research.
