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

We included only tenured faculty in this inventory as they have a continued requirement to conduct research.

To determine whether disciplinary research work was related, we utilized the U.N. Decade of Education for Sustainable Development criteria, indicating that sustainability education learning should include:
• respect, value and preserve the achievements of the past;
• appreciate the wonders and the peoples of the Earth;
• live in a world where all people have sufficient food for a healthy and productive life;
• assess, care for and restore the state of our Planet;
• create and enjoy a better, safer, more just world; and
• be caring citizens who exercise their rights and responsibilities locally, nationally and globally.
