Organizational Hierarchy

Organizational Hierarchy

The Organizational Hierarchy (OH) is a commonly held understanding of the university's operating structure which is required to consistently characterize the complex data at the university.  The OH can be viewed as a resource aggregation and disaggregation tool, where the resources may be:

-Human resources: faculty, staff, and student workers

-Financial resources: budget, encumbrances, and actuals


The Organizational Hierarchy structure is as follows:

Senior Executive
School/College/Major Area
Reporting Unit

A video to introduce the SU community to the Organizational Hierarchy can be found in EngageSU.


Reports pertaining to the Organizational Hierarchy can be found in InformSU.  Trainings about these reports are offered on a monthly basis.  Please see Trainings in the menu at the left.
