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

The Office of Sustainability staff sent existing data from our 2016 faculty research list to departments and faculty for reporting and verification. Staff then checked department websites and faculty CV's for additional faculty in departments for which no researcher was identified.
