A brief description of the methodology the institution followed to complete the inventory:
In 2012-2013, a GA in the Sustainability Office created a questionnaire for each academic department to complete. In most cases, the GA met with a department's faculty to explain the definition of sustainability and ask instructors if they conducted sustainability research. In other cases, the department chair was provided with a copy of the STARS definition of sustainability and the department chair talked to instructors themselves to complete the questionnaire. A report was created which lists the instructors researching sustainability as of 2013.
Does the institution make its sustainability research inventory publicly available online?:
The website URL where the sustainability research inventory is posted (required if claiming Part 3 of the credit):
