How do I set up and link staff to Faculties?

Why use Faculties and Departments?

Faculties and Departments can be used in various areas of Arbor to group Staff and Students. This helps provide more in-depth reporting and makes it easier to manage Staff time.

For example, in the Behaviour Incident Workflows, you can choose to notify the Head of Department.

Faculties refer to the umbrella category that departments fall into. For example within the Humanities faculty, you may have Departments of History, Geography etc. They cannot be linked to other faculties but they can have multiple departments.

Multiple Departments can be linked to each Faculty, or they can exist on their own. Departments cannot be linked to other departments.

This guide covers using Departments and Faculties in conjunction, including:

  • adding Faculties
  • adding new Departments into Faculties
  • adding existing Departments to Existing Faculties
  • adding staff members to a Faculty

If you wish to use Faculties, it's easiest to first set up your faculties, and then add your departments into them. If you do not want to use Faculties, take a look at our other article on Departments to find out how to add Departments without using Faculties, add stand-alone Departments, and add courses and staff to Departments.

 

Adding a Faculty

To set up your Faculties go to School > School Structure > Faculties. This will take you to the Faculties Dashboard where you can add and manage your School’s Faculties.

Click +Add to add a new faculty.
