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 University does not have a central body that collects information on all research conducted by out faculty. However, the Office Research and Sponsored Programs requires documentation of any project that requires human interaction. We have searched through that inventory and compiled a list of ongoing research that relates to sustainability. We specifically searched for key-words: 'sustainability', 'environment', 'ecology', 'social justice', 'equity', 'diversity', 'local', and 'agriculture'.
