University Organizational Structure

To Request a Change:

The Organizational Structure Change Workflow represents some of the steps required to make a change.  For questions on changing organizational structures (i.e. adding, removing, reorganizing, renaming), contact Reka Wrynn.  For questions on organization head name changes, contact Jackie Brenn.  A new request form is currently under development.  In the interim, please send requests via email to Reka or Jackie and include the detail change information and justification for the change.  All requests to change the Organizational Structure must be authorized by the supervisor at the next level up.  In addition, official approval from the Board of Trustees may be necessary for organization name changes.

To receive notifications relating to the University Organizational Structure, sign up for the MUD-L listserv.  

Request Types

Adding/Removing Orgs

  • Adding - Once new orgs are established account holders are responsible for adding accounts or moving accounts into the new org.
  • Removing - Check for open accounts, check employees work departments, check for assets
  • Multiple account/asset changes can be done via interface rather than individual edocs.

Reports To Org - Organizational chart should be submitted along with the change request.

Renaming Org - Organizational chart should be submitted along with the change request. Certain academic orgs may need Board of Trustees approval prior to changes.

Upon receipt of a request from a Department for the above changes, that request will be formally submitted to the entities who will make the changes in the system.  The timeframe for all changes to take effect in the system can be up to two weeks, dependent upon all actions that need to be taken based on the changes (e.g. security and/or proxy impacts).  Please consider these timelines when submitting requests; submitting them before the change effective date if possible.

*For the changes that must be effective at the start of the current pay period (at the time of the submittal to Core-CT), if the deadline is missed for that pay period cutoff, the change will need to wait and be processed in the following pay period, using an effective date of that new pay period.
