The inventory list of applied research projects was compiled by Sheridan Undergraduate Research (SURe) and then further worked on by the Office for Sustainability (OfS) to identify sustainability related research. Every March, academic departments report a list of active projects to SURe. Furthermore, funded projects are tracked independently by SURe.
Sustainability-related applied research projects were then identified from the list of active research projects and key personnel associated with these projects from various academic departments were contacted for more information. The OfS in collaboration with the Project Coordinator at SURe ,identified and documented all the faculty and staff engaged in all kinds of applied /funded research at Sheridan. Additional collaborators from faculty/staff for each sustainability-related projects were identified and listed by the OfS.
A final record of all faculty/staff involved in all kinds of applied research and those among them involved in sustainability research, was sent back to SURe for corroboration. Finally, an inventory of all the sustainability research projects and faculty/staff involved in these projects was compiled.
