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

As a first step, UCI faculty were surveyed via an online form. The link to this form was emailed to all campus faculty via a mailing list maintained by ZotMail, UCI's primary electronic communication system. ZotMail enables authorized senders in the offices of the Chancellor, Provost, Vice Chancellors, and Deans to send official UCI messages using a password-protected interface. Survey respondents were given the definition of sustainability research, as well as a link to UCI's most recent sustainability research inventory. Respondents were then asked whether any research they had conducted within the past year met the definition of sustainability research. The survey was then supplemented by a review of faculty websites, as well as sustainability research-related campus news releases, in order to identify additional sustainability researchers. The total number of departments was drawn from a review of the UCI Course Catalogue, while the total number of salaried faculty engaged in research was provided by the UCI Office of Institutional Research.
