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

The Center for Urban Sustainability has visited with various departments asking about sustainability research within their departments. At this time, this is the most complete list, though we know it is missing many projects and hope that with this new Center, UNO will have a much better grasp on the total amount of sustainability research happening at the University the next time we submit our STARS report.

At this time we used 90% of the total FT faculty for the total number of faculty engaged in research. As we develop better tracking mechanisms, this number will get better.

52 Departments from UNO Fact Book 2013.
