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

We conducted an inventory by sending out a notification in the Williams College "Daily Message" email notification system asking faculty and staff to self-identify. We also contact staff directly who were either included in our last report as having done sustainability research or whose area of expertise lead us to believe that they might be involved in that research.
