Department Names

In order for Human Resources to provide reports sorted by department names or select employees for reports by department, it is essential that all forms contain a standard department name in the format that our system accepts and understands. For department names we are limited to 32 mixed case characters. Employees can only be assigned to one department in our system. Consequently, for employees that are appointed to more than one department, Human Resources must assign them a "home of record" based upon such factors as workload and employment history.

Following is a current list of acceptable department names and name formats to use on our appointment and directory information address/name change forms. Both of these forms are available at: Forms.

The Office of Human Resources, in conjunction with President's staff, has developed new procedures to aid the campus in recommending new departments and/or recommend a name change of existing departments. We believe this procedure will help our campus community to more efficiently recognize new departments and changes within departments.

To recommend a new department name or change an existing department, simply use the Department Name Recommendation Form, which can be found on the Office of Human Resources website at Forms.

Once the form is completed and a complete departmental listing is attached, including department head and phone numbers, this form can be forwarded to the Office of Human Resources for review. If such a request is denied, Human Resources will follow-up with the recommending individual/department. If such a request is approved, Human Resources will follow-up with a letter to the campus community informing them of new departments or changes.
