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 UWyo STARS Team created and distributed a survey designed specifically to collect information regarding STARS credits AC02 and AC09. This survey was sent to department chairs/heads at UW so that they could collect information from within their departments. Since we did not have a 100 percent completion rate for the survey, some additional research was required to identify the exact number of academic departments at UW.

We will also note that the number of departments reported in this credit differs from the number reported in credit AC01: Academic Courses. This is due to the fact that several subject courses are housed outside of any specific department - accordingly, per the STARS Technical Manual, we defined these instances as their own separate department. Accordingly, while AC01 reports 61 departments, AC09 only has a reported 52 academic departments (which, based on our most accurate data possible, have active researchers).
