Organisational structure should primarily be modelled using the org ontology, with types from the AIISO as appropriate.


Your main institution should be of type org:FormalOrganization and aiiso:Institution.


Sub-units should have org:subOrganizationOf and org:hasSubOrganization relationships with their containing unit.

Collegiate universities

If your institution is collegiate, then each college should be of type org:FormalOrganization and aiiso:College.

(TODO: Determine how to associate a college with a university to which it is affiliated.)
