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

A survey was sent out to all faculty on campus via Qualtrics and responses were collected electronically. Any respondents who answered "Yes" to any one of the following three questions were counted as a faculty member conducting sustainability research.

1. Does your research/project explicitly address sustainability and/or further our understanding of the interconnectedness of social, economic and environmental issues?
2. Does your research/project contribute directly toward solving one or more major sustainability challenges?
3. Does your research/project engage community members with the aim of combining knowledge and action to achieve positive social, economic, and/or environmental outcomes (e.g. participatory and community-based research and engaged scholarship)?
