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

We sent a survey to all department chairs containing the definition of "sustainability research" that asked them to identify all faculty in their department that would meet the criteria for this credit. We also conducted a review of faculty bios to identify any work or research that may have been overlooked by department chairs. We then sent an email to all faculty identified as being involved in sustainability research, asking them to 1) verify that they are indeed engaged in sustainability research, and 2) if there were any faculty missing from the list of those engaged in such research.
