A brief description of the methodology the institution followed to complete the research inventory:
Chairs or directors of each campus unit were queried as to whether each of their faculty and staff were 1) engaged in research and 2) were engaged in sustainability research. Copies of the definition of sustainability research from the STARS 2.0 Technical Manual and a copy of the definition of sustainability research developed by the President's University-wide Sustainability Committee were provided for use in determining research that is considered sustainability research. For departments that did not respond to the survey, it was assumed that all faculty were engaged in research and no faculty were engaged in sustainability research.
