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

Research faculty and department lists were obtained from PBA and analyzed for their research content according to STARS definition of sustainability research.

The above list does not contain faculty and staff that have not reported their reasearch to the University Research Database VIVO. The above data is conservative without the inclusion of newly awarded research.


A brief description of notable accomplishments during the previous three years by faculty and/or staff engaged in sustainability research:
