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

The Office of Sustainability Initiatives (OSI) distributed an online Qualtrics survey through an all-faculty email, and followed up with a SCOPUS search of faculty research through the St. Thomas Library as well as professional engagement summaries from Deans' offices throughout the institution. The survey inquired about name, department, description, and reference for scholarly work from Fall 2018-Spring 2020. For this submission we included all tenured and tenure-track faculty.
