Academic Organisational Unit Group

A unit formed by an institution to undertake as their primary objective teaching only, research only or teaching-and-research functions, or which is used for statistical reporting purposes. Such units are referred to by various names, such as "schools" and "departments".

An academic organisational unit group provides a means for standardising academic organisational units across the institution. Academic organisational units are assigned to an academic organisational unit group on the basis of disciplines for which each academic organisational unit has a teaching and/or research responsibility.
