During the diagnostic phase of the OE2C project, our research revealed that our most efficient and effective peers in higher education utilize flattened and less hierarchical organizational structures, with fewer “layers” and larger “spans.” To help the University create an organization that is better positioned to reinvest in our academic mission, the Organization Design Initiative began its work in late October. The work of this initiative will be focused on ensuring that the structure of management best supports the mission of each academic and business unit.
