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

Types

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

Sub-units

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.)

 <aiiso:Institution rdf:about="#university-of-example">
   <rdf:type rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/ns/org#FormalOrganization"/>
   <rdfs:label>University of Example</rdfs:label>
   <org:hasSubOrganization>
     <aiiso:Division rdf:about="#humanities-division">
       <rdfs:label>Humanities Division</rdfs:label>
       <org:subOrganizationOf rdf:resource="#university-of-example"/>
     </aiiso:Division>
   </org:hasSubOrganization>
 </aiiso:Institution>
