Unfortunately, this is not a complete accounting of all faculty at UofL engaged in sustainability-related research. Rather, it represents our best available data, from an inventory of research grants and publications over the years 2009-2011. We do not have an efficient system for tracking unpublished and non-grant-supported research, but we know many faculty are engaged in such research related to sustainability and we value their many contributions.
