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

Researchers were identified through a four step process. An initial list was developed based on the inventory of researchers that was submitted for our last STARS submission. The list was then reviewed to identify whether they are still engaged with sustainability research. Secondly, additional sustainability related researchers were identified as part of the RENEW strategic planning that worked to identify focus areas and interdisciplinary research areas.
