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

Faculty were identified based on departmental website entries of research interests. Faculty were considered active in research if there was evidence of completed scholarship (e.g. publications, conference presentations, grants received) in the previous 3 years. University webpages and press releases were searched first, followed by internet searches (e.g. Google Scholar) for faculty in sustainability-related research fields.

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