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

Student interns and Office of Sustainability Staff completed training through the Office of Research Administration and then keyword searched the university's database of sponsored research to identify principal investigators who conduct sustainability research. Keywords were adapted from lists shared by other universities who used a keyword search method, expanded and reorganized across the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. The keywords were shared with staff from UMD's Global Sustainability Institute to help ensure that they were appropriate choices. Total number of the institution's faculty and staff that are engaged in research is based on the total number of faculty included as Lead Investigators in the database of sponsored research in CY 2018.
