Department Code Taxonomy

The Office of Institutional Research maintains a list of administrative codes that are used to identify departmental units, sub-groups within departments, course offerings, and other special units. These codes are used by Institutional Research, University Human Resources, the Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost, Parking Systems, Payroll, Purchasing, the Registrar, Information Technology Services, and other administrative units to define the university's organizational structure for reporting and routing of documents.
