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

Representatives from the Environmental Resilience Institute and the interdisciplinary Teaching & Research Subcommittee of the University Committee on Sustainability collaborated to create the attached spreadsheet of departments and individual faculty conducting sustainability research.

Total number of employees is from the Institutional Data site (https://ira.virginia.edu/university-stats-facts/employees) and includes Tenure Track Faculty & General Faculty, but not Administrative Faculty or post-doctoral researchers (so they were also excluded from our spreadsheet).

Relation to sustainability was thought of as research at the intersection of environmental and human/economic systems. And data was validated through faculty directories on each school and department's website.
