A&S Department Names Taxonomy

In order to more systemically share data across web sites and various administrative systems, we have developed a provisional taxonomy for identifying our departments, centers and other units in news stories, events listings, profiles and other content. The system is provisional and may need adjustment as central Advancement and/or Marketing implement university-wide solutions.
